In what sense? It could effect a denial of service (DoS) attack by making many requests in quick succession to the point where the server load is too much and nobody else's requests get served. This isn't generally a problem with spiders coded properly such as those used by major search engines for indexing the Web.
Is that the sort of info you were looking for?
