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.

    Yeah, that'll really help to hit the web site from a bazillion different anonymous proxies . . . so he can log into the site to spider it.

        I'll say this again, slowly. Look at the original question and read again:

        IT DOES NOT HELP TO USE AN ANONYMOUS PROXY TO HIT A SITE TO WHICH YOU MUST SUPPLY A LOGIN TO ACCESS.

        (Presuming of course you don't also have some sort of . . . well I don't want to colour things with the wrong adjective for those hypothetical human rights researchers but I can't think of another, but some sort of "fraudulent" means of obtaining an authentication token which can't be traced back to you).
