This may have some bearing on Linked (Open) Data; just because Linked
Data can be dereferenced and read via GET, does that mean it can be used

Assuming this post is accurate, Mr. Warden was threatened with lawsuits
from Facebook.  He built a more or less garden variety crawler, he claims,
and he observed the limitations in Facebook's robots.txt.  Nonetheless,
they apparently made him destroy the data.  See [1].  Anyone know more
about this?
