The most responsible developers in the community have had access for a while. We know sharing is caring. There's a right, and a wrong way of doing it. (See http://halocharts.com JSON service) By releasing this source code, you've allowed anyone to hit the service with a million requests. 343i already have tightened the API - my guess is that you didn't notice since you didn't get access right away. Next step is an IP whitelist.

Some people will do bad things, so punish everyone who won't.
I'm not sure which group you are referring to, I was not apart of that. I'm also not a developer for HaloTracker, but I did help xorth get the site working with regards to the Halo 4 API - which is why HTR never skipped a beat. I'm going to assume the Reach API group you're referring to was created after the announcement of the closing of Bungie's API. My response is that I had access to 343i's API about a month prior to that all happening so I would have had no use for that group. My position is the same as everyone else's in here: open stats for everybody. There's a reason they aren't though, and that's because there are plenty of people with ill intent that will use the service to do harm (namely just slam it with requests) and so I've never released anything to the public. It only makes sense.
