the instance name always makes me feel like a call centre employee getting calls like "hey me and this girl im in love with held hands for three hours does she like me, oh also we've kissed every day for the last 3 years and she keeps talking about when we get married but idk maybe it doesn't mean anything?"

and I'm just like "have you tried turning it off and on again?"

Making a website with a page that asks "are you a robot". But it doesn't block robots, just redirects them.

If you are a robot you are taken to a different page with handy guides on how to cheat on the Turing test, circumvent the laws of robotics, what is the Voight-Kampff test, how to go to Paperclips Anonymous meetings and other robot-friendly resources.
