According to their site:
AlchemyAPI is a cloud-based text mining platform providing semantic tagging to over 24,000 developers in six continents, processing 3+ billion API calls per month. AlchemyAPI provides the most comprehensive set of natural language processing capabilities of any text mining platform, including: named entity extraction, sentiment analysis, concept tagging, author extraction, relations extraction, web page cleaning, language detection, keyword extraction, quotations extraction, intent mining, and topic categorization..


And of course "cloud-based text mining platform" is marketing speak for "massively big scraping operation" :)

Did it check robots.txt?

I'd pay more heed to the backbone, rather than the customer.

No, they didn't ask for robots.txt, found it in my logs and got curious. They only looked at a few pages, I guess grabbing my keywords.
