Slow down, but not stop, serving pages to bot that doesn't respect robots.txt delay

What's this @ thing mean?

@location is a named location. Named locations preserve $uri as it was
before entering such location. They were introduced in 0.6.6 and can be
reached only via
, post_action <>(since
0.6.26) and try_files
<> (since
0.7.27, backported to 0.6.36)."

Essentially, you can still server any content you want using that syntax, it
is just a way to redirect nginx without rewriting the $uri.
