Remove the host from your hosts.cfg, then Xymon will ignore updates 
from it. Yes, it will still receive messages from it, but dropping them 
immediately when the hostname is not found doesn't cost much processing.

Too bad if you do want to monitor *some* elements, but dropping the 
host entirely from Xymon at least gives you some bargaining power 
towards the people who mis-manage their monitored server.

Firewalling can also be a solution, if the IP is unique.
