Is Yahoo blocking IP's from Europe?

For a couple of days I have serious issues with my yql application and it looks like it's general, not only related to my tables. I did the next test.

https://query.yahooapis.com/v1/public/yql?q...com%2Foauthdemo

This is from http://derekville.net/2010/how-to-secure-o...-in-javascript/

And when trying to access the link from any computer in Romania and I've tried this from an German IP too I get the "The current table 'twitter.status.timeline.friends' has been blocked. It exceeded the allotted quotas of either time or instructions" message.

If I do this from an US ip address it works.( I did a remote desktop connection somewhere in US )

What is happening? My website is in the same situation ( www.carteapenet.ro). It does not work from Romania or Germany, but it works from State.

Thank you,
Valentin

  • Interesting, most likely this particular table is not finishing execution within 30s some of the time. If a particular table starts timing out it gets placed in an abuse queue to avoid executing tables that are proven to be long running. Probably this table executes fine in the US which is why there hasn't been issues there yet.

  • This does not make any sense. The tables run on the yahoo servers, no mater where your IP address is. How can this happen?

    Here are 2 screenshots, taken couple of seconds apart from each other, and pointing to the same table:
    This one is using my Romanian IP adress


    and this one uses an US IP adress


    Again, how is this possible? I am getting very frustrated. And As I've said this is happening to my tables too : http://query.yahooapis.com/v1/public/yql/c...iagnostics=true

    Yahoo please fix this!

    Thank you

  • It looks like there are different servers that deliver the results:
    yqlengine2.pipes.mud.yahoo.com
    and yqlengine2.pipes.ch1.yahoo.com, and the .ch1 one is the one it's not working right.

    Can you investigate please what's going on?

    Thank you

  • I don't think it helps when some of your examples are Twitter queries. My experience with Yahoo! Pipes is that Twitter has different rate limits for different Pipes servers. While a European server may have used up its Twitter allocation for the hour a server in the States may just have had its allocation renewed.
