Forum: opensource_movies Subject: "There is a network problem. 503 Slow Down." What causes an upload to be flagged for spam?

I've uploaded many videos to the archive without issue, but the one I tried uploading this morning errored out with "503 Slow Down. Please reduce your request rate. Your upload of [video] from username [my email address] appears to be spam. If you believe this is a mistake, contact info@archive.org and include this entire message in your email." I've already emailed info@archive.org about it, but in the meantime I'm wondering what I did to cause this to happen. Which conditions need to be met in order for this issue to occur? It implies that it thinks I was uploading lots of videos at once, but it was just one, and only once.
