I currently rely on a webscraper that I built to get the data I need to do some research, but I've used it very conservatively (cool off timing, memory for pages that have been seen previously so that they aren't needlessly pulled down multiple times, with the whole thing run sparingly and targeted to only a small subset of the entire forum) for all the reasons you mentioned (don't want to hammer the website/disrupt its availability for other users, impose major costs to you, etc).

I guess the reason I like APIs is because I feel like there's no ambiguity about what's acceptable with regards to data collected, data collection throughput, etc., but I can certainly continue the limited scraping practices I've done previously if that's ok (if it ever causes issues, let me know -- I'm responsive to your needs first and foremost).

Yea, so as far as I'm concerned as long as you publicly publish your findings then it's aye-ok to use anything publicly facing here (read: no private forums or hidden forums).

And based on my bandwidth consumption, you could probably have a more aggressive cool off in the overnight hours. Say 2-6 AM ET. You could probably only wait like 5 seconds between grabs then and be just fine.
