I believe the original honeypot was to be triggered if they caught somebody
poking around the Gnutella and then dropping suspicious packets on their
network. "Legitimate users" wouldn't find themselves in that situation
because they'd only contact the Gnutella side of things and wouldn't be
probing the Gnutella host via other means....
