Read captured conversation about Parler (Pastebin)

<Dash> I didn't see any mention of the header in the github repo so I feel it's helpful to mention this: in case anyone gets ratelimited, Parler will honor an arbitrary x-forwarded-for header with any IP and, well, not ratelimit you according to my unscientific test
[...]
<kallsyms> Dash: lmao really?
[...]
<andrew> Dash: okay, that's actually pretty huge cc kiska arkiver Fusl
<Kaz> heh, good to know Dash
<ave> this is amazing
[...]
<NotNite> yep
<Kaz> does that also apply to the API Dash?
<andrew> so, who wants to modify the thing to generate new IPs for X-Forwarded-For for each job and see what difference that makes?
[...]
<Dash> Not sure, but i'm credential stuffing them with 300 threads without getting ratelimited
[...]
<Dash> Someone else should probably test
