           Summary: API documentation
           Product: Validator
           Version: HEAD
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Documentation
        AssignedTo: dave.null@w3.org
        ReportedBy: lde@trustpilot.com
         QAContact: www-validator-cvs@w3.org


The API docs says:

"Note: If you wish to call the validator programmatically for a batch of
documents, please make sure that your script will sleep for at least 1 second
between requests. The Markup Validation service is a free, public service for
all, your respect is appreciated. thanks."

from: http://validator.w3.org/docs/api.html

I call the API programmatically, but after a while, it's like my ip is blocked.
>From that machine I can not call the API nor enter the website
(http://validator.w3.org).
>From other machines with other IPs I can.

If I stop my program and run it after a while, the program succeed to validate
using the service, but is blocked after a while again.

My program sleeps, making sure that there is a gap of at least 1 second between
requests.

Is the documentation wrong or am I wrong?
