Who should be contacted to avoid DDoS risk (loop between Sysadmins and OWG)

I want to use OSM API in way that may be either utterly harmless or risking DDoS. For obvious reasons I want to consult with someone who has a proper understanding of the situation.

Unfortunately has "for technical and operational issues involving OpenStreetMap's servers or systems, and in case of abuse of those systems, please contact the Operations Working Group." has "It does not concern itself with: (...) Day-to-day running of the servers. This is the remit of the Sysadmins group "

Not sure if you are pulling jokes on us, but why don't you use the email address provided? They will forward you to the correct person, I am sure. I would email this question to the address provided, because I do not think they are watching this page. --Tigerfell This user is member of the wiki team of OSM (Let's talk) 10:14, 3 June 2019 (UTC)
I would prefer to contact correct group of this two groups of busy people. I also want to fix documentation to reduce confusion. I also contacted one of sysadmins, without reply so far. Mateusz Konieczny (talk) 02:44, 4 June 2019 (UTC)
