"lame servers" are sorta like the mail that you receive at your new
home that are addressed to the previous home owner. Someone somewhere
out there thinks that your address is the best way to get ahold of
that person. When in reality, you have no way to do such a thing. And
in this case, some computer (theirs specifically, or one in between
you and them) is asking yours for directions. Your computer is logging
that, "Hey, someone lame (pun intended) just asked me about 1.2.3.4
thinking I was in charge of it. I just thought you'd like to know"
