Yes, now they state they are at fault and here is the comment:

Dear Client

Thank you for contacting StartLogic technical support. 

Apparently the user agent for the w3 validator matches libwww-perl which is
currently blocked as an emergency fix for the internet worms that were attacking
websites which also reported as libwww-perl. Once out admins develop a more
elegant solution to the problem the user-agent block will be removed but for now
it will have to remain.
