Thanks, this should help. My app is now failing Jon Skeet test miserably - requesting in batches of 30 :(

Actually, click on it a few times, sometimes you get HTTP 400. Seems intermittent.

comment Add careers link and info to StackAuth
Makes sense. Careers has a rather focused purpose and does not really benefit from API access.

comment please add a key fields to stackauth results
Sounds like a non-problem to me. I've been using site name with no problems - it's both cache-friendly and SEO friendly. And besides, it's cache. So what if you have a cache miss? Example of a cached request + URL: stacktagz.com/#/stackoverflow.com/22656/jon-skeet

comment Why does the API lack any POST methods?
The crowd here is pretty pedantic. When you say POST you really don't mean HTTP POST (although read/write API would imply HTTP POST) but posting questions/answers/comments. Probably best to decapitalize the question and the title :)

Attribution is a double-edged sword, isn't it? He insisted on putting up a copyright notice on trivial code, i reposted it, now we all know he's a bit of a wanker :)
