This is true, most of the major news providers put a limit on the number
of simultaneous connections they'll accept from the same IP.  For each
of the various news servers I set up, I typically put a limit of three
connections per IP to stop abuse.

So, if you're planing on doing something like this, you should
definitely insure that the number connections can be easily controlled
and configured.
