Connection "temporarily restricted"?

Is this happening to anyone else on USEast right now? I got disconnected and then this message came up on the character screen. I don't use maphack or anything, is this something to worry about?

Were you......

Switching characters quickly?
Entering and exiting games quickly?
Did you leave a game just before you were about to die?

Any of those three can get you "temporarily restricted". It's happened to me a few times. Blizzard is being overly precautious and lookin out for bots, etc., but you should be able to log back in within 15 minutes or so. I always have in these situations.
