Users surpassing a rate limit will be redirected to a page explaining they have been rate limited. Write copy for this that explains why user has been rate limited and alternatives for for bulk/research queries of bmo data.
:mcote, what's the URL of the form to request the research sample of bugs?
There's no form; just file a bug under bugzilla.mozilla.org :: Administration with the summary roughly of the form "Provide access to the BMO researcher dump to <person>".

Btw it was a decision a while ago to not widely advertise the research dump.  It should be for valid research purposes at an accredited institution only.  At least, that was the decision at the time.

Copy for Rate Limited Page

Overall I approve of delivering a notice of this kind, but on the basis of my last comment I'm giving an f- to this version.  We can talk about it more during our next meeting if desired.

I don't want this to block implementing the rate limit, as this is clear and present problem that needs to be resolved quickly -- a simple "rate limit exceeded" message is all that we'll do in bug 1355169.
No longer blocks: 1355169

Updated copy for rate limited page

Updated the copy, if there's time add the redirect to a new page.cgi that would be awesome.
