>A sister site called 4plebs archives the board's typically ephemeral content, but when a programmer and I attempted to scrape 4plebs, the site repeatedly rebuffed us, forcing us to make 11 requests to the domain for each page of posts we wanted – out of a total of about 30,000 pages. After two days of halting progress, 4plebs dumped its data on archive.org, the internet's effective Library of Congress. I later learned the site's monsoon response to our rain dance of scraping requests was merely a favor that the 4plebs team regularly performs.

Did they ask you about this in IRC or something? Also is this the first time 4plebs made the "news"?
