The fact that you're a bit squeamish here has me wonder if you're violating some terms-of-usage.

Not really. It's just that this is for a research idea which could easily be copied (in fact I think the administrator should have thought of it himself), so I'd prefer it if what I was doing wasn't known until I have the results.

    But you could still address the webmaster with a question like:
    If I write a spidering agent that hits your site, do you have any guidelines, such as time-of-day, rate-of-hits, or areas examined?
    If you were to write me with that, I'd be very happy to tell you.
