Do you have a special arangement with Chris McEvoy?
How do you feel about people slurping in the site:
A> to do do research social dynamics of online fora?
B> to write their own personal GUI to the forum:
C> to provide an alternative public access point (HTML or RSS)?

Do you arrange for people like Chris an alternative bulk delivery method?

Chris is adding a lot of value to this forum so it's worth it.

Besides, he noticed that all posts and replies use a monotonically increasing ID, so I'm pretty sure he only slurps new posts and replies, which does not use any more bandwidth than a single user.

And he was gracious enough to ask permission first.

Does someone provide RSS to this site? I'd like use it.
