Hi Liam, Thanks for contacting us. Yes, it looks like we saw a spike in requests from you guys and sometime last week we blocked your IP. During the spike we were seeing 95% failure of your requests (I'll have to check on what types of failures). Can you tell us a bit more about what types of requests you will be making (which URLs) and, if different, what requests you were making during the spike in requests? Also, any thoughts on the 95% failure rate we were seeing? We'll open things back up for you. I'll let you know when it is done.
