VMWare blacklisted wget, why? (curl is not blacklisted)

if you run

curl –user-agent ‘Wget/1.19.1’ -v ‘https://www.vmware.com/go/getplayer-linux’ -L

you get some html error page saying “Dear user, the web content you have requested is not available”

but if you remove `–user-agent ‘Wget/1.19.1’`, then you get the actual installer script. why is wget blacklisted?
