Now, if Fedichive is being a Good Robot, announcing itself with a user agent, and using a single IP, etc...

I'll give the whiners a couple of weeks.

Then I will be building *my* archive spider.

*My* archive spider will use the user agent for the most recent Firefox for Windows. It will connect through Tor exits and residential open proxies. Sites that reject both will be crawled by a pay-by-the-hour compute instance with a unique IP.

There's also entire subnets of routers with default creds.
