It slows down NMAP plenty ... are you saying it is not a good scanner?

As has already been pointed out, using DROP would not slow down a good
scanner significantly.  You could parallelize so that you can scan as
many machines as you want, all within one timeout period.

And it only takes one good coder to arm all the script kiddies with a
good scanner.
