in reply to (OT) safe to mechanize?
Would it be wrong/immoral to bring up the legions of free proxy servers on the net? It would take some complex code, but you could take a list of 100 proxy servers and randomly chose one for your next link to be opened. Or if you don't care if they know they were parsed, your only concern is you don't want them to know YOU parsed them, you could use just one proxy. Keep in mind that proxies protect you from a mad webmaster, they do nothing to protect you from the law.
