I'm just getting started with accessing LJ data such as a users interest list. (Ex: http://www.livejournal.com/misc/interestdata.bml?user=frank>) I noticed the following comment at the top of the page:
# Note: Polite data miners cache on their end. Impolite ones get banned.
What is considered polite? Ten minutes, thirty minutes, an hour, a day?
