as a sidenote, we once had a *person* (stupid or not, you decide) spamming various boards, linking to one of our sites. the comments were along the lines of "this site is the best", "all other sites are crap", etc
I was looking into referral spam today, and discovered that this happened to Jill Whalen as well. Perhaps it could happen to anyone who gets successful enough to inspire jealousy?
