yeah, i didnt think they would be.. any idea what the limit is set to? I
dont mind say querying 1 domain every hour (extreme limit) but time is not
critical with what im using it for. Just want to update billed until date in
our database every month or so. I dont care if it takes all month to run
over ~ 200 domains, as long as there's a date in there :)

If you use the public whois or the lookup utility on the DNC site, there is
a rate limit applied if a certain number of queries are attempted in a short
space of time. If you happen to be an authorised Registrar, then you should
connect via the XML gateway where rate limiting is not applied (or at least
it's set a lot higher).
I don't think the NZRS are interested in a conversation to increase this
threshold on the public site. Been there, done it, got the T-shirt !

I've been doing whois lookups against whois.srs.net.nz for a few domains we
host at work, mainly to look at the billed until date. However, small
problem.. query 10 domains and suddenly they block you.
Has anyone else come across this? if so who do you talk to to get the limit
