    We all get the same 432,000 polls a day (unless you're Deny's or other collusion-adept businesses), out of sheer interest. Has anybody ever ran through all 432,000 in one hour? ie. 7,200 polls a minute? 120 polls a second? Does anybody actively do this? Is it even possible? Presumably you'd have to have some tech capable of handling that load.

    Lucky picking an hour out of 24 seems like something only people who are "in cahoots" with other tags are capable of doing. Perhaps having someone covering all hours of the day under different tags. Who knows.

    It's limited to 1000 queries per minute. So no.

    1000 queries per minute, adjusted every 5 seconds so good luck with that, you'll be blocked in, well, 5 seconds! The effective limit is 16.66 but even that might not help!

    I wasn’t thinking about trying it. I just wondered, as I said, if it was possible and if anybody had done it? Out of curiosity. That explains a lot of things for me though thanks.

    Yes I probably should have read this beforehand. This part is particularly interesting. How does one have over 432,000 polls in 24 hours? Guessing that’s GoDaddy etc.

    That is from the time delay DAC (100 ms).
