Bandwidth and processing power isn't free, and the W3C QA tools, which
are free for the public to use, and don't get a whole lot of funding (
http://www.molly.com/2008/12/11/w3c-validators-in-jeopardy/ ).

If you want to check a large number of documents, then I suggest you
install your own copy of the link checker (there's a download link at
the top of the link checker homepage) instead of complaining that you
aren't getting enough out of the free service.
