I didn't think it would have been a problem but then I came across this from ezinearticles.com...
"You agree to never use article crawlers, rogue bots, site scrapers or any automated script/software or method that attempts to mine the article content on EzineArticles.com. You acknowledge that we may block your access to our site and/or membership."
Now does my program go against that?
