You can of course do whatever you want but I encourage you to use a unique agent name and version for your script; maybe even a less whimsical one than my original suggestion. :P I meant to expand on this and forgot. It’s more transparent—I’d argue more honest—better metrics for the host, and being a good netizen, from an API standpoint, is better for everyone and, I believe, reflects well on Perl compared to some other more, uh, mercenary communities. Update: response codes are at the discretion of the host code and webserver. They are frequently not particularly sensible.
