I recall there was a way to search for multiple strings within the
user agent to allow a 403 redirect... but i cant find any info on

example. im 403`ing any user agents that match the Macintosh string.
now id like to be able to do this for say "Macintosh, Windows,
Firefox..." so on

if ($http_user_agent ~ Macintosh) {
    return 403;
