Get used to it.  I've experienced this type of activity from various 
sources since becomming an official mirror.  I usually block the 
offending class C via iptables/pf and go from there.  (Flushing blocks 
every 6 months).  Not sure what else can be done to thwart/prevent this 
type of abuse.  Are they intentionally trying to consume $ resources?  A 
misconfiguration somewhere (unlikely)? Any ideas?
