As a relatively newcomer to these lists, I was wondering who is correct in
their ideas? The guy who introduced his nifty "spider bot" or the guy
telling us all that the other guy is breaking a law.  I don't like getting
mixed up in flamewars or even minor skirmishes, I just want to know what
the moderator thinks about this and the ethical conditions that are
touched...
Also are these kinds of posts tolerated?
