        Quoth Stefan Caunter: 
        'however, some limiting (wapo, i did not check newyorker) is
more sophisticated than this.
        'you will reliably be redirected to the front page of the
washington post, if you request any url at all and their counter says
you've reached your limit.'
        I browse every day without this experience.  Perhaps I don't
reach the limit, but I've gone over 20.
        As we discussed in this forum earlier this year, they block
access from User-Agent headers with lynx in them, so I substituted
l_y_n_x; you were involved in that discussion, and it happened on
every access to me.
        FWIW, mine is:

        Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; rv:1.9.2) Gecko/20100115 
Firefox/3.6 l_y_n_x

in case that makes a difference.
