I've got a server running at Digital Ocean and far as I know it there is no NAT involved.

My server better not be attempting to pull every second, but if (ip redacted) ends in 228 let me know.

Sounds like an automated script gone bad. You're a lot nicer than I would be; I'd just block the IPs at the firewall and be done with it... Of course then you'd get a new forum member complaining that they can access Git locally but not from their VPS. :)

As mentioned, I don't think Digital Ocean does anything but VPSs with dedicated IPs.

Digital Ocean definitely doesn't do outbound NAT or half my sites wouldn't function correctly. I can also confirm that those aren't either of my instances.

If they're hitting you that often I'd report it personally. Digital Ocean takes abuse reports pretty seriously.
