A follow up note on our web scraping tutorial

We had published a web scraping tutorial a couple of days back and it had received a good response from the #rstats community. While we thank you for that, we made a mistake in choosing one of the case study as pointed out by @hrbrmstr in this tweet:

We choose the case study to appeal to a wide audience but in doing so we set a bad example. We have removed the case study from our post and apologize to the #rstats community for our oversight and promise to be more responsible in the future.

We reiterate it is very important to read the terms and conditions before scraping data from a website and checking the robots.txt file is not sufficient.
