Site ripping

I would like to ask all visitors to this site to please refrain from the use of site-ripping software. There was an incident today where a single user accessed more than 1000 pages over the course of about 90 minutes, and as a result ate up a large portion of the site’s bandwidth allotment for the month. I was forced to ban that individual’s IP address in order to halt the ongoing site rip and preserve enough bandwidth for regular visitors to continue viewing the site uninterrupted through the rest of the month.

I love Star Trek, and have been creating this site as a comprehensive, reliable, well-researched and well-documented reference source; I want to keep it available to the public, but further attacks like that could seriously impinge on my ability to keep the site online.
