what does this mean?

I webpage I have been extracting data looking at seems to be blocked, but I can access the webpage in my browser without any problem

here is the yql message
<publiclyCallable>true</publiclyCallable>
<forbidden>An error caused the engine to disallow robots for this domain</forbidden>
<url error="Connect Failure" execution-time="1" proxy="DEFAULT"><![CDATA[THE URL]]></url>
<url
error="Requesting a robots.txt restricted URL: THE URL"
execution-time="2395" http-status-code="403"
http-status-message="Forbidden" proxy="DEFAULT"><![CDATA[THE URL]]></url>
<user-time>2573</user-time>

the url is from wikispaces and the settings are protected, where everyone can view pages.
is this wikispaces doing?
Or could it be some sort of glitch, since I can still see the page clearly on my browser

  • Most likely the website has a robots restriction which YQL is observing.

    What is the query you are trying to execute?

    you know what is funny josh, i did the same operation and yql returned the feed. Maybe I was using the page to much and the server blocked me for a bit. I was testing for hours and hours on it.
