What can be done to block Codidact content from getting used by crawlers/for AI training?
Given the latest debacle [Somewhere Else](https://meta.stackexchange.com/questions/399619/our-partnership-with-openai), where users fear that the site contents will get used for the purpose of training AI, what can be done at Codidact to prevent such from happening? 

- At what extent can we block "crawlers" and the like from stealing site content? What is technically possible?

- Do the communities want such a block, if technically possible to achieve?

If we would be able to block such crawlers or at least make a statement that Codidact content will never be deliberately used for the purpose of training AI (unless perhaps attribution can be guaranteed), I think that could be some major selling arguments for winning new users over here.

There is a mass exodus of users leaving SE currently because of this and many will be looking for a new "home".
