After using GitHub API, account has been flagged

Is this common practice? I was making a bot, I authenticated properly and my account was flagged while testing it. All my repositories are hidden from the public and my github page is down.

Freaky, what were you doing with the API?

Making a ton of commits.

I got an email from them a few days ago and ended up getting unflagged. It sucks that I wasn’t able to use GitHub for a few days, but I’m glad that they reviewed my account and responded in a timely manner.
