Except me. I'm running it on my desktop and laptop. Torrenting it as we speak.
I get about 5 of these a day, on a relatively small site. I wrote a small shell script out of sheer boredom that parses hosts.deny and gives me country and hostname info. Here's the output from the past week or so. It seems to confirm that most of these are from public isps overseas.
