Thanks Mike.

I ran into the issue using http://validator.w3.org/; at first
consistently, then hit and miss (occasionally the validator would
work), now it seems all fine (but I’ll have been dealt new IPs).

I guess my concern is that some services, like VPNs, only offer a
limited number of end points, and a bigger user base using these end
points may inevitably look excessive to a service. I know from
Wikipedia, Google, others that they throw CAPTCHAs or even disable
their services then, which is not quite helpful. And so that’s what I
thought had happened with the validator, too.

I’ll have an eye on the local option, though I’ve shied away from that
in the past. I’ve set it up in some environments in the past and it
wasn’t always that straight-forward :) Maybe it’s different now.
