I'm working on an open source project named ComiXed, a digital comic management tool. And I'm putting together a release today. But in doing some tests I started getting the following message:

Your API key was blocked due to malicious use.

When I scrape any comics. I've been using my developer key to write the scraping code (which was finished last week) and had no issues. But now, today, I'm getting the above error message.

Has someone flagged me as "malicous"? I'm not sure why this is happening. Can someone help?

Ugh, it says on the API page:

Your API key is currently blocked because you used more than one key at a time. Please stop doing that and wait 24 hours to use only one key.

I was testing putting dummy values in for a bug report and seems it locked me out. Is there a development endpoint that can be used so as not to have things like this happen in future?
