Hi Roger,

I don’t know who’s webpage is that you are
scraping, but if it is a third party’s webpage
make sure that you are not violating their
terms of agreement or infringing on their
copyright.  You might want to ask for their
permission to do so, to make sure you are
safe and legal.

If it is your own webpage, then feel perfectly
at ease scraping away.
