    FYI/heads up/Admins

    Just got this message when I unsuccessfully tried to log in.  Obviously, when I tried again, I did get access.

    Your access to this site has been limited
    Your access to this service has been temporarily limited. Please try again in a few minutes. (HTTP response code 503)

    Reason: Exceeded the maximum global requests per minute for crawlers or humans.

    Important note for site admins: If you are the administrator of this website note that your access has been limited because you broke one of the Wordfence blocking rules. The reason your access was limited is: “Exceeded the maximum global requests per minute for crawlers or humans.”.

    If this is a false positive, meaning that your access to your own site has been limited incorrectly, then you will need to regain access to your site, go to the Wordfence “options” page, go to the section for Rate Limiting Rules and disable the rule that caused you to be blocked. For example, if you were blocked because it was detected that you are a fake Google crawler, then disable the rule that blocks fake google crawlers. Or if you were blocked because you were accessing your site too quickly, then increase the number of accesses allowed per minute.

    If you’re still having trouble, then simply disable the Wordfence advanced blocking and you will still benefit from the other security features that Wordfence provides.

    If you are a site administrator and have been accidentally locked out, please enter your email in the box below and click “Send”. If the email address you enter belongs to a known site administrator or someone set to receive Wordfence alerts, we will send you an email to help you regain access. Please read this FAQ entry if this does not work.

    1. I noticed that one of the posts

    Failed to load for me a bit ago. Could have been my end though. Everything seems ok now.

    2. I think it’s part of the bot protection…

    Are you a bot?

      3. Being Friday before Christmas, maybe a lot more people are off work today?

    5. If someone, or something, tries to access too many pages

    Within a very short period of time, they’re automatically blocked for a short period of time. I don’t know exactly what the parameters are.

    We’re checking to see that everything is set correctly. Sometimes, with updates, things change without us being notified.

    Thanks for the heads up. Sorry for the inconvenience

      8. One of my posts is there twice.

      And I only posted once.

        9. That could be a hiccup.

        The site rebooting while you were posting

      10. I think it’s set to 30 requests/minute…

      Only @mannygoldstein knows for sure.

    7. I'm not sure why that happened

    In any case, I just backed off that setting so hopefully it won’t happen again.

      today has been faster than it has been for many months.

        I wish I knew why…
