I hope that your actions cause the SEs some pause for thought.

It's not - system load is.
slurp was so aggressive that it was too much load
Same problem my site... Yahoo reply says "didn't fine an actual problem ... (use) crawl-delay directive". Of course, Yahoo is not alone in this - the G Mozilla-bot has actually brought other websites down due to an over-agressive GET-frequency. Very satisfying to think that your actions with this site may actually get this message home to them.
New site search engine is in alpha ... Not in any real big hurry for it
Less than 1 in 1k users use site search
You need to re-think your attitude to the importance of in-house search now. There was little need for it before, because it was covered by the SEs. This place is not just a community, it is also a resource.
