g1smd - Thank you, that is what I thought but wasn't quite sure. I didn't think it would be that easy or I would have found that already.
wilderness, that sounds like a better way to fight this battle. They are not all .ru, but at least 95% are. I was going to block by referers but there are too many domains - over a hundred a week and they are not really referrers, there are no links that were followed.
I appreciate the quick help, I will see how that syntax fits. I am not adept at all this, but have been picking up bits and pieces, and can look up what baffles me - or ask. Thank you!
