Option to block scanners and "SEO" tools

Hi there,

I would love to see an option under the Firewall to block automatically all the scanners and other “SEO” tools such Ahrefs, Majestic and less known craps. That’d be awesome.

Got it again by some s**** today and this made me think about having my idea expanded a bit: hook up the Firewall option to services such as https://www.abuseipdb.com/ to increase the effectiveness of the blocking rules based on user’s reports.

I guess this is Cloudflare’s answer to my suggestion: A new Cloudflare Web Application Firewall

This is probably more applicable:

FOOTNOTE: This blocks a lot of automatic traffic, including any bots you may actually want to use. For now, there’s no way to fine-tune each of the settings, even through Firewall Rules.
