Yes I did have.
Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 8.0; Windows NT 5.1; Trident/4.0;
.NET4.0C; .NET CLR 3.0.4506.2152; .NET CLR 3.5.30729; .NET CLR
So, I tried cleaning it up to :-
Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 8.0; Windows NT 5.1; Trident/4.0)
Still no cigar. Could it be the trident? I realise that this is not
something that you guys want to be troubled with, quite rightly, but if
it's possible to narrow it's likely causes, these details might be able
to be included on the 403 page "http://wiki.videolan.org/403.html" for
users to at least have a fighting chance of self correcting.

This happens when the spam filter thinks your User-Agent is fake. I
don't know 
the details, but one known reason appears to be User-Agent with several
run-time versions.
