I am getting the 20,000 limit, but the requests are being made from a whitelisted IP. According to the documentation, whitelisted IP take precedence over authentication, so requests will count against your IP limit rather than the user's. As a general question related to this topic: For all the developers who are working on a solution that involves authenticated users, would it be more convenient to get removed from the whitelist (or never apply for it) and use the authenticated user's 150 requests/hour limit?
