In order to work, your request to the server must contain a `Referer`
HTTP Header. Your request obviously does not, either your browser does
not send such a header, or a proxy filters it out, some Personal
Firewalls, AntiVirus and Ad-Blocker Software suppresses acts as such a
proxy, maybe that's the problem...
