Yes, and if I choose to think things that common practices are wrong, I am free to protest as I see fit. I hardly see the need for Flog Nodes to be created. What is the point of this whole thread, other than, Aighearach complained in the chatterbox, and is wrong? As for claims of legality, those that have followed the court case know that it is not in fact a clear issue at all, yet, only certain specific instances have been determined. Although, that is somewhat besides the point. If I was making use of somebody elses _private data_ to gain popularity for my site, and they wanted the link not even removed, but slightly altered to point the user at the containing page, I cannot imagine refusing to do that.

    Data posted to the internet isn't private, it is legally declared public if it's posted to the public internet.

    So, if I'm to understand this correctly, having your stats and a link to an image of you makes a site popular? Sheesh...

      It is a bit of a stretch to get that out of what I said. Obviously, you are using PerlMonks content to get visitors to your stats page.

        Um... correct me if I'm wrong, but... isn't the whole purpose of the stats page to serve the PerlMonks community? So, yes, PerlMonks content would in fact be a good thing there.

        I think it's incredibly arrogant of you to assume that I wrote the stats page so I could see my Apache logfiles grow. The whole stats project was a result of two goals:

        One was a learning project for PHP4. I believe that every language has a place. Perl is a greate language, but PHP4 was an unexplored medium for me, and I found that this project lended itself well to such an exercise. It interfaces into a database, required argument processing, etc.

        The second was to satisfy a craving in PM statistics. Sure, I could generate the numbers by hand, and then watch them be out of date within seconds. Not much point in statistics that aren't current.

        I might not even have advertised the page on PM, had it not been for a couple of other users who expressed an interest in PM statistics.

        I've generally avoided this Deep Linkage thread. Fact is, I really don't care. Until the court tells me not to do it, or vroom tells me not to do it, it's not changing.

        End of discussion.
