Here's a fine example of how the internet may soon look with an email I got recently that actually asked permission to do something because they couldn't just take what they wanted without asking!
The following is slightly edited, but you get the idea:
We use a service called xxxxxxxxx.com to provide xxxxxxxx of sites that we have links to on our site.Yes, manners are still alive and well on the internet and someone has politely requested I punch a hole in the firewall and let them in.
It appears that the xxxxxxxxx.com is being blocked. I'm guessing this is a tool you use to block crawlers. You can see the error here:
Is there any way you can allow xxxxxxx.com access of your site?
I'm leaning towards YES just because they asked so nicely!
Witness one of the first steps in ending the Wild Wild Web.
