I am trying to avoid hitting the rate limit in my application, by requesting the rate limit status of the endpoint I am about to use, before querying it. However application/rate_limit_status endpoint is rate limited itself with a rate limit of 180. The endpoint I am using (users/show:id) is rate limited with 900 requests.
Basically I am getting penalised for trying to avoid hitting the rate limit. Shouldnt the application_rate_limit endpoint either be not rate limited at all, or at least have a much higher rate limit than all the other endpoints?
Thanks for your help,
