To summarise what the other posters have said;

* Somebody has used Tor to scrape/mirror the site.
* This has triggered a script which, instead of rate limiting your IP,
blocks it and sends an automatic abuse email.
* They don't know/understand Tor; it's not an anti-Tor thing.
* Don't panic.

Their page describes itself as "open product catalog for free
distribution". Not very free if they block scrapers...
