How long does a throttlin' last?


I got the “Traffic Rate Limited” email from support. Fair enough, my site got Dugg/Stumbled/Reddit’d unexpectedly, and the traffic is pretty insane.

So I switched everything over to static pages, and begged support to “review the case” (their words, not mine,) but I haven’t heard a peep from them all day. And my site’s still spitting up 503 errors on half the requests.

Anyone been through this? Any idea how long the throttle stays in place?


I would expect it to clear at midnight.



Thanks Scott. Fingers crossed.
