Masto Admins / Gab Nginx blocking 馃嵉 

Domain blocking only affects the local database (github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/), Gab can still query your instance.

I added these three lines to my Nginx server block to detect their User-Agent and always return 418 I'm a teapot (tools.ietf.org/html/rfc2324#se)

Tested from their instance and it causes errors 馃帀

@debugninja if you grep your access logs for 鈥淕abSocial鈥 you should see the status code going back to them. If you can鈥檛 see any requests from them I can send some from their instance when I get home later 馃槉
