Probably a Cloudflare block. Make sure you're sending a valid User-Agent header.

Thanks for the quick reply. I've never done that before, could you point me to some resource where I can educate myself?

    Here's an MDN article on it. How you actually add it will depend based on the HTTP library in use.

    If you are using Python with the python-requests library (since it's popular) it will look like this:

    import requests
    headers = { "User-Agent": "nsfwjjjjjBot/1.0.0" }
    requests.get(some_url, headers=headers)

    Thanks, added a custom User-Agent string and it works again now!
