CellarTracker vs. Snooth

January 30, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

I don’t want to get into this debate at all really, but I’m writing this more to support CellarTracker here.  To me, this really reflects poorly on Snooth.  Whether innocent mistake or not, ethically, this is still unacceptable.  For those unfamiliar, it sounds like Snooth has been “scraping” data from the CellarTracker website.  I’ve been a user of CellarTracker for a couple of years.  I’ve occassionally browsed and contributed to the Snooth site as well, but no more.  I’ve removed my account.

Here is Eric LeVine’s newsletter from CellarTracker on the subject.  And you have to commend him for being awfully forgiving in the circumstances.  Eric provides links in his newsletter to the blogs that originally identified the data scraping.
