Fight Back at Spammers

2005-05-23 20:31 - General

So ... Referrer spam! Any website owner who watches their logs is going to find it sooner or later. They'll see referrals listed, check out the site, and not see a link anywhere that someone could have clicked on. It's sheer manipulation, shady companies trying to inflate their own page rank. Dirty, dirty, dirty! So let's fight back! I've started a simple Make Love, Not Referrer Spam campaign. If you hate spammers, take a bite out of crime! Load up this page, or the teeny popup version linked therein, and start loving. You'll keep downloading images from the spammers' web sites, using up all their bandwidth. If you have broadband you'll barely even notice the difference. But the spammers will, sooner or later!

You may use Markdown syntax in the comment, but no HTML. Hints:

  • An empty line between text will create a paragraph boundary.
  • Use angle braces around a plain URL to auto-link it: <http://www.example.com/>.
  • Use this format to create a link with different text showing: [An Example](http://www.example.com/).
  • Use backticks (``), not leading spaces to enclose a code block.

If you are attempting to contact me, ask me a question, etc, please send me a message through the contact form rather than posting a comment here. Thank you. (If you post a comment anyway when it should be a message to me, I'll probably just delete your comment. I don't like clutter.)
