Hi,

As I mentioned at https://github.com/validator/validator/issues/330 you can
use https://checker.html5.org/ instead.

As far as the W3C validator goes, if ~30 requests from the same IP address
(or even the same IP range) are repeatedly hitting the validator in a short
period of time, it’s going to trigger the rate-limit blocking we have set
up, and there’s no way around that.
