every message sent from it. I tried adding my email address anyway, but that didn't

It looks to me like I was blacklisted for EN Wikipedia API requests. My website has been
using the API for awhile now, but suddenly I'm getting 403 errors coming back.
I've tried to follow all the rules, but if I've missed something I'm happy to
make changes. What disturbs me most is that there was no attempt to contact me before
being blacklisted to let me know there was a problem. Where should I go to find out what
the problem is?
