We brought Stratus Plan and webpage says we could make 100 calls per minute.
But i get daily reports that we abuse the limit of 10 call per minute.
So in that e-mail they say that i exceed the limit of 10 calls per minute.
And in footer info it says that i have Stratus plan giving me max 100 calls per minute.
What am i doing wrong for getting banned for like 11 queries per minutes and having Status plan?

Here is the copy of the latest e-mail (api key removed)l:


Your wunderground API key (xxx) exceeded its allotted usage today by making 32 calls within a minute but the limit is 10.

This feature_id has been disabled for the remainder of the day: history.

We check usage for 24-hour periods based on U.S. Eastern Time.


The plan you are registered for is Stratus - Drizzle, granting you 5000 calls per day with 100 calls per minute limit for all of the features in the Stratus package. To upgrade your plan go to: http://www.wunderground.com/weather/api/x/xxx/edit.html


Details: exceededrate_history: maxrate: 32 (of 10)

History is not included in your plan and no longer sold.  Currently we allow certain base rates of calls to our features, which gives you 500/day 10/min This is a courtesy and may not always continue
