I suspect it is something that is going to have to be dealt with in the
future (I just don't know how yet).
The web has managed to survive despite constant fast crawls being the norm
for the past 10 years or so. I wouldn't worry too much about this unless
you can prove that a big chunk of

My node receives a 'getaddr' request about every 50 seconds:

2014-07-30 13:13:33 receive version message:
/getaddr.bitnodes.io:0.1/: version 70001, blocks=29,

can see this kind of thing being used in DDOS attacks and deep scans to
gather information to be used to harm the bitcoin network. We could easily
block them but then they
I believe the requests Jeff is seeing came from my crawler although anyone
