The robots.txt file on the site is telling wget that downloading
the site in an automated way is not allowed. So wget stops.

Normally you should never tell wget to ignore the robots.txt,
as you could be damaging someone's web site. However,
in this case, since you are actually trying to rescue that very
web site, you can do so as follows:

wget -e robots=off -m ...

Hope this helps,
