Using DA got my IP banned from Alexa

I was runing a search with the DA beta and toiced a response from Alexa in the logs which said that my IP was banned for possible violations of the Terms of Service.

Can we do something about this? I am afraid to do any more Alexa searches for fear of this becomming permanent.

I’ve just tried Alexa without any problems - how often did you search? But maybe you’re just using a too large number of results per plugin for Alexa.

I am pretty new to DA and I would be surprised if I have done more than 20 searches over two months and with 500 results for the plugin.

I guess the large number of results and the fact that the plugin needs some updating (will be done in v2.0.3) caused this.
