Scrolling around a lot in Potlatch 2 in a densely mapped area while
zoomed out can tigger the rate limit. If the area is densely mapped
then zoom in before scrolling around to reduce the chance of
triggering the limit. Alternatively switch to the View tab when
scrolling around.

The block is automatically lifted within a few minutes.
