The typical reason for this message and restriction is entering and exiting games so quickly that blizzard thinks you're a bot. That's the basis behind all these temporary restrictions. Spamming chat, quick enter and exits, other stuff (???). Here's a link with more info.
To add to your (???), if you have hotkeyed skills, if you accidently scroll the mouse, it will go through all your skills and you'll get an interrupted connection, which could be a result to that message appearing. The time varies, I suggest just exited Diablo, go do something, come back and it'll be fixed...usually.

Sitting at the computer and continuously trying to connect will get you angry. Also, if you have a character editor, just have some fun on open.
