At the turn of the year, a series of multiple requests from a different IP each time started requesting favicon.ico
For example:
75.101.222.128 - - [01/Feb/2011:08:20:28 +0000] "GET /favicon.ico HTTP/1.1" 200 2822 "-" "-"
This request ran over 1,000 times in a 3 hour slot each request from a different IP.

Do I need to worry, and how can I stop these requests without interfering with the site functionality?
I would prefer them to not appear as 200s in my logs if it is possible.
Can anybody shed any light on this please.

That particular IP is assigned to Amazon but that's about as far as one IP can take the "investigation"

Thanks Chris, but the IP steps round all the time and is clearly Spoofed.
