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?
