Patch.com is a "hyperlocal" news community which is being downsized from its current ~900 sites to ~500.
In progress. Warrior integration coming soon.
Patch.com will rate-limit you across all sites
Patch.com institutes a rate-limit (some unknown hundreds of requests/hour) across all sites. If you exceed this, all of your requests will be met with HTTP 420s.
If the patch-grab script detects these, it hard-aborts. A kinder solution would be to sleep for some period of time (an hour?) and try again; suggestions appreciated.
