I talked to Peter Cassidy yesterday.

We talked about corvette. For the record, they don't deny it's theirs, and
that it's part of their ongoing enforcement operations.

Maybe it's time to fire up your spider traps, boys and girls? I do know
that Los Alamos had one up for fun a few years ago. It was discussed on
this list about the time AltaVista got started, maybe 3 years ago...

I bet that corvette doesn't give a squalling fuck about "no-crawling" HTML

Anyone want to bet on how long it'll be some idiot in DC tries to make
spidertraps illegal?
