Service Interruption for Bad Requests

We have held off, for years, on enforcing certain "Best Practices", which went into effect earlier this year. Due to several requests, we still continued to allow a very bad practice of sending "secret keys" in embedded requests. This is definitely not recommended, but some early adopters of the service manually put links throughout their blogs and have no way to modify them.

While we want to avoid any service interruptions, we simply cannot continue to allow this potential security loophole to continue.

Within the next 1-2 weeks, we will make the switch to our new servers and complete the "Massive Migration Project." When that happens, the new server will no longer accept those bad requests. A related error message will be returned and the secret key must be removed from the embedded request before it will begin working again.

If this affects you, we apologize for the inconvenience, and we thank you for your understanding.
