That said if what you're hosting is a) Not mission critical and b) low

I have a private (for family and firends) photo-sharing site on my home
machine and am bloody careful to put it on a non-standard port, not to
advertise the link to it anywere, and keep reminding the intended audience
not to pass on the link.
Before I moved it to a special port (i.e. away from port 80) and still
without advertising it anywere, I used to get tons of probes on it, and I
don't see the benefit of paying for bandwidth to be used by the various
viruses who keep knocking on my door.
