Rate limit

The ScrapIn API has a rate limit of 15 requests per second. API rate limits are essential for managing server load and ensuring consistent and reliable service for all users. By limiting the number of requests a user can make per second, it helps prevent any single user from overloading the system, which can lead to slower response times or system outages, ensuring fair usage and availability of the service for everyone.
