Yes, this is the problem I have.  I'm hosted on zettai, so am a little
limited in the options available to me (I believe).  Zettai have said they

sort something out in the meantime.

Blimey, 50,000 records sounds pretty heavy (for my purposes)!  As far as I
can tell, there are two or three IP addresses producing all of these pesky
requests.  Do you have code that you can share?
