New EZProxy security rules 

Next release will disable a user account that:
* downloads more than 500 megabytes of data in 60 minutes
* downloads more than 100 PDFs in a 60-minute period
(among other triggers)

We proxy streaming video and music.

And Zotero & friends can grab 100 PDFs in a few minutes.

Luckily we will be able to "augment" these rules based on our library's "unique" needs.

Doesn't seem well thought-out. A lot of libraries are going to be hitting this.

@dbs Not to mention that 500MB could easily be a couple of graphics-heavy dissertations or one chonky-boi data set.
