Main reason is to react to port scans or swiping attempts at well-known 
I.e. Someone (or some bot) connect to port 22, 25, 110, etc... when 
there's no such service available and he/she/it gets banned.

I too am wondering whether this still makes sense today (after more that 
20 years since portsentry was conceived).
Yey I'm currently tasked to replace it, with possible questions being 
asked later :)
