will craigslist ban Wipbox?

it certainly appears to help users but does it technically violate craigslist's terms of use (agree not to:"u) use automated means, including spiders, robots, crawlers, data mining tools, or the like to download data from the Service - unless expressly permitted by craigslist") and will craigslist do anything about it?


P.S. Wipbox gets their ebay data through dataunion (which licenses the ebay content to them) but it appears that they do not have permission to use the craigslist data. D.
