Block Editor Search Function Choke

The WP block editor has a problem in the search function. When in editor, using a search function in the add link box, WP sends out so many requests that the server cpu gets backed up, chokes the webpage, makes it inaccessible in a 508 or 503 resource limit stop. This is new with wp 6.0.

Using he classic editor this does not happen. Searches in classic are rather prompt, as is adding tags in classic, rather quick. Switched to classic editor to avoid constant sever/cpu chokes while composing.

WP needs to address this issue as the block editor is unusable on a low end server hosting package. Hosts just want to sell a bigger package, which is not necessary for a simple blog.
