comment What is the Errors endpoint used for?
@Kevin, You're right, I've crossed-out that part, my firefox just gave me alert Firefox can't find the file at http://api.stackoverflow.com/0.8/errors/4005., view-source was not viewable, so I assumed it was only in http headers. didn't watch with HTTP traffic, I stand corrected.

comment display_name isn't always there (should have OpenID name if needed)
@Jonathan, I inclined to agree that. And yes, I can't think of there is problem with returning username from OpenID too, and its true that its already on the site. Someone need to convince them to include that. But "every user has username" isn't true, take a look this question, superuser.com/questions/37449/what-is-and-in-a-directory , you would see nothing there (no userlink, no username, may be even no userid or its gone), so best thing is not to rely on the existance of the display_name on your program.

comment display_name isn't always there (should have OpenID name if needed)
@Jonathan, its confusing, but there is two names, in Stack Overflow db, I think. one is display_name which user explicitly set, but since it is optional many people don't put it, so Stack Overflow get username info from OpenID string or from OpenID provider, but I think they don't want to expose that part, so until now, they are rejecting those requests.

I think he should get "RequestLimitExceeded" Error JSON, if that is the case, but his problem looks more like from DOS Protection mechanism for me.
