Wine Search Restored

Posted by Chris Carpita, Oct 19, 2012.

About an hour ago we started getting flooded w/ requests from the anonymous TOR network which brought our search index to it's knees.   The offending robots have been blocked, and we've put some general harm-reduction measures in place to prevent this kind of thing from happening in the future.   I'm sorry for any inconveniences this may have caused

To the scrapers out there: you can apply for an API key here:  http://api.snooth.com .   We don't believe in locking down our site data (it's public info for the most part), so there's no need for the cloak-and-dagger nonsense through TOR.  Just scrape us gently in the future, otherwise I'll notice and block you.
