    Huffman claims it’s about things like LLM training that uses the API, as if it isn’t possible to validate apps that want to use the API and only issue keys for approved apps. This could save third party apps while preventing bad actors from gaining access to the data without scraping the site.

    No, if bad actors were the problem then the solution would be much different.

      The only problem Huffman has is that Huffman’s bank account doesn’t have enough zeros and he aims to change that no matter what.
