I wasn't thinking in terms of blacklists, but simply the fact that most
web servers have a limit to how many connections they will accept, and
extras get ignored.  If you're trying to fetch your schedule at the same
time as thousands of other users then you could have problems.  Try
running a manual fetch during the day and see if you get through.
