"Who is" Research 

Keen to show off their research skills, Gawker did some "background research" on who is behind the Lloyd-Grove-is-a-scumbag site. They revealed some Ernie Savage as the internerd. All that and who this is doesn't really matter to us. They found out about Savage looking up the Whois entry for the scumbag site domain. And that's the point which raises our concern, because Blueprint Coen actually links to the relevant Whois entry.

Now there's a Terms of Use of this database which says:
under no circumstances will you use this data to: (1) enable high volume, automated, electronic processes that stress or load this whois database system providing you this information; [...] dissemination or other use of this data is expressly prohibited without prior written consent from us.
Isn't there supposed to be an editorial director or a publisher to have an eye on such things?
