    The outer "mandatory" array of JSON often throws people like that.

    It's not mandatory, the only JSON there is within {}. The outer brackets are an array, typically sent like that because they receive an array of JSON items.

    Hence the quotes... for some reason a LOT of people seem to add it and claim you have to. Yes, it makes no sense.

    I should have implied a more sarcastic tone.
