Not sure if I should go ask this on some other meta, just asking it on cstheory because this is my favorite stackexchange.
Today I have been getting the following error, a lot:
There are an unusual number of requests coming from this IP address.
To protect our users, we can't process any more requests from this IP address right now.
We'll restore access as quickly as possible, so try again soon.
If you believe you have reached this page in error, contact us.
I have never gotten this error before.
I can't refresh to make it go away, I have to wait a bit and then referesh. This has slowed down my browsing. I don't think I am doing anything different in my browsing from usual activity, and I am definitely not running any scripts. Is there a common issue that leads to this that I can avoid?
Alternatively, is it possible to just modify that page with a ReCaptcha (Google does something similar when you query it too quickly) so that I can prove I am human and continue browsing right away instead of waiting a while? (I know... no patience on the internet!)
