Dewald, it should be noted that, of course, not all 200 request responses are created equal and just because pulling down a response body with hundreds of thousands of ids succeeds, it doesn't mean it doesn't cause a substantial strain on our system. We want to make developing against the API as easy as is feasible but need to do so in a spirit of reasonable compromise.
