Sophisticated Spam
The referrer script that I have been using has been discontinued, because somehow people with dodgy sites & sinister intent figured out how to make their sites appear on the list, as though they had a legitimate link to the site posting the list. I suffered with this a bit, but some folks seem to have suffered with it a lot.

The referrer link is off this blog, and off the revamped geocities pages on the rest of the site. I just have to remove it from the original crimsonblog pages from 2003. The code seems to be hosted by someone else now, but the list of referrers is every bit as squalid and strange as it was last week. So farewell cool referrer service. Once again commerce has elbowed a useful little tool in the gut.
