There's such thing as 'decoy hosts' in nmap. :) Making your site appearing to
do portscanning of that company would be trivial for any script kiddie. (if
this counds as an argument).

Another option could be that you should review those guys snort configuration.
They may just have tuned their portscan detector to scream even if a single
packet to certain host pops up.

hope it helps.
