SiteGround redirect loop to /.well-known/captcha/

Recently an attempt was made to add this site into the list of websites built using 11ty.

Whilst verifying the pull request the site was found to be stuck in an infinite redirect loop as shown below:

After a bit of digging a SiteGround blog entry provided an indication of what may be happening.

It seemed the pull request reviewer was being identified as being a bot and hence was being redirected to /.well-known/captcha/. After a quick web-chat with SiteGround it seemed the anti-bot AI was infamous for causing such issues and an offer was made to disable it.
