Hi Deborah,

I’m not involved with the Validator but I can forward the message to the
right place.

Maybe your team was making too many requests for what the system would
allow from a single location. The Validator maintainers must throttle
the traffic because it would overwhelm the systems.

As I understand it you are using the free version of validator, right?

Have you heard of the Validator Suite[1]? Its meant to be used
specifically for what you seem to be doing.

Bien le bonjour, de Montréal,
