MediaTemple Blocks IPs when Uploading Lots of Files

It almost never fails - when I'm uploading a lot of files (typically I see this when I'm uploading a vBulletin update) - my server will eventually boot me out and refuse to connect for 10 to 15 minutes (or longer).

Nobody's ever been able to give me a reason why or tell me how to fix it. It just happened again. All the server reports back is "connection failed" and I'm booted mediatemple-wide. I can't even access OTHER accounts (not the same dv account, literally other accounts) on mediatemple. My IP is clearly blocked for awhile.

Not cool.
