    That was my guess as well. While I've not used your service, that
    would be one thing I wouldn't be surprised to see, since every Internet connected host is going to get probed.
    I think regional ip blocking might be one way for the server host to ease the strain on some of the probes.

    TBH, I think control of that is best left in the hands of each client. What if I was running a system catering to Asian interests and the system side block list blocked all Asian countries, for instance?

    But make it easier for the sysop to turn different countries/regions on and off to suit their needs.
