So, no to net neutrality I guess?
After all, it can be done because the internet is open and free and they can't block you as long as you are not doing something illegal.
What you suggest is like if you go into a public park and start video recording, and someone tells you "it is legal to video the park, but I'm just going to block you from doing it anyway". Kinda defeat the purpose of laws...

epic1337 tbh public availability of data is the problem, has nothing to do with people scrapping them, e.g. the moment they posted their data for all to see is where the problem begins.
should always opt for some privacy measures and only expose the bare minimum information you can tolerate other people seeing.

pen names exists for a reason.

Just wish the industries that provide likes..../ re-tweets.. dumps that silliness too and we can also dump the term "viral" finally
unfortunately they'll all just be absorbed into the twitter bot.

how hard did you cringe the first time you heard a politician or news show host use the word troll?

Omega X The courts were right on this one. The information is public, therefore everyone can see it.

There are and will always be ways to circumvent these types of protection, headless browsers.. running multiple slower scraping tools from different IPs etc.
The only sure fire way to put a stop to it is to not expose the data publicly....
