Comment (by ryan):

 That error is issued by Apache.  The mod_dosevasive Apache module is often
 responsible for it.  dosevasive is meant to thwart DOS attacks.  If
 dosevasive is the reason, I'm not sure why wp-cron.php is triggering it.
 If wp-cron.php is missing, bug #3713 will cause an infinite loop that
 could cause wp-cron.php to raise the ire of dosevasive.  In your case,
 however, wp-cron.php appears to be present. Try
 includes/cron.php?rev=4850&format=raw this version] of wp-cron.php and see
 if it at least helps with the error messages.  It might not remedy the
 ultimate problem with future postings, but let's see if it makes any
 difference to the client denied errors.

 We may need some help from your host to see if mod_dosevasive is indeed
 installed and if wp-cron.php is hitting some criteria that is causing it
 to be denied.
