Suggestion: Bot Fight Mode - scrapers AMAZON ClaudeBot

I think, that Cloudflare should block scrapers when the Bot Fight Mode is on.

Claude is a next-generation AI assistant based on Anthropic’s research into training helpful, honest, and harmless AI systems.

Details:

ClaudeBot does not respect robots.txt and scrapes your data away.

Our server kept getting harassed by this bot, caused ridiculous loads while the single site hosted on it normally doesn’t get that much traffic. Added a rule in WAF to block it by user-agent and it has already blocked close to 1000 requests in 10 minutes time.
This is definitely a bad bot that should be generally blocked

we managed to block it on most sites due to his UA, I don’t want to block the whole AWS as it’s hard (the traffic comes through CF)

Cloudflare should managed this on their own = not to allow scrapers
