I’m confused as to why the limits are so strict. I just did a bunch of testing converting infrastructure over to use kube-lego (https://github.com/jetstack/kube-lego) using the staging environment. When I switched to prod, I believe I actually hit a bug relating to switching environments, and ended up hitting the limit immediately.
My question main is, why am I banned for a week? If it’s about server load, I would think banning me even for a few minutes would be enough to avoid hammering the server. If it’s about something else, can you explain it so I can feel less bad over the coming week?
My second question would be, why 20 per week? If the limits were removed, what would the bottleneck be? Related to the first question, why would the limit not be in terms of requests per second or minute? I’m pretty sure my thinking in terms of reqs/sec is misguided but I don’t know why.
