As Danny Sullivan said at his blog entry, "Search engines have generally disliked rank checking tools, so what a surprise to read on the official MSN Search Blog a tip about one." After all the heat I got from Google for using their API to make a rank checking tool, MSN search comes out and publicly tells people about these wonderful tools that screen scrap their beta msn search engine. I like their attitude. :)
In an effort to see what others think about this topic, I posted a thread at SEW forums named MSN Loves Screen Scraping Applications. Or feel free to drop a comment, if it gets through the spam filter checking.
