Big Ball of Mud maintainer (mostly Java, C++, and SQL - Perl, Python, and JavaScript as necessary) currently living in Charlotte, NC. I also tutor Java, Python, and JavaScript part-time at Franklin University.

I blog about programming, math, learning, and technology at BillTheLizard.com.

You can follow me on Twitter, @lizardbill. (If I recognize you from SO or meta, I'll probably follow you back.) You can also find me on Google+ and on GitHub. (Questions about moderator actions on Stack Overflow should still be posted on Meta Stack Overflow.)

I also wrote @BountyBot, a Twitter bot that posts new and interesting bounty questions from Stack Overflow. You can view the source on GitHub.

@ChrisGerken I'm not sure either. It might have been observed in the past from sites that were scraping giant amounts of content from Stack Overflow, so they put that clause in just to explicitly tell people not to do it.

comment How much content is OK to display?
Are you asking from a UX perspective (How much information do users want to see?) or from a licensing perspective (How much information am I allowed to show?)?

@Jack If I can find the time I'll update it, but I don't have any immediate plans to, so I don't know when that will be.

@Mat: Yeah, I've tested it with all the Trilogy sites, including Meta. It should work with any of the sites that have an active API route.
