I'm not so sanguine about this. If you need to reach a site for business
purposes, and an automated 'bot denies access, there may be a human review
process. However, you cannot ignore the temporal component. If you needed
the info in a timely manner, running through a manual bypass process can
easily take too long (ever had to do this with a Fortune 500 company where
response time to such requests is usually measured in weeks?) for the goal at
hand. My experience is that this is the norm, not the exception.
Humans may at times be reasonable (though the course of human history leads
me to conclude otherwise). Corporate policies and procedures are rarely
