I was in the middle of scanning my IIS log files entries, and saw /humans.txt 404
 
What is humans.txt? So I googled it and found this...
 
http://humanstxt.org/
 
This is an interesting cause and rather new. my log scanner entry caught this:
.txt - 2020-10-07 14:09:35 nnnnnnnnn GET /humans.txt - 80 - 192.71.103.173 Go-http-client/1.1 - 404 0 2 171

The Irony is that a video on Humans.txt existed 5 years ago: check it out https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y7uaHd-KrvU
