Thanks for the comments David. The behavior of what happens is
completely defined by the chosen VertexResolver, see
(GiraphJob#setWorkerContextClass). Developers can implement any
behavior they want. I believe the only reason to bypass was as a

I just wanted to send this out because I remember reading a discussion on
this topic. Currently, graph will create a vertex in the graph if a
message is sent to a vertexID that doesn't exist. Personally, I really
really like this behavior. It enables me to forgo vertex creation if I
don't need it. If I need the vertex, I can simply send a message to
create it, and process the message that was sent. I understand that there
are some concerns with this. . .I would suggest making this behavior
configurable at job creation. This would be an awesome compromise, and
would not preclude either type of behavior.
