Hello,

just today, I had someone in my listing that prolly used a bogus referrer.

Here's the info:

originating: 202.167.118.163
'referrer': [villagevoice.com...]
(actually an aticle about some wanto killing in vietnam, with a search field)
ua: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.01; Windows NT 5.0)

same ip, same ua.
referrer:http://search.thunderstone.com/texis/websearch/?q=vietnam&c=%21

one of the sites returned by thunderstone. is, oddly enough the first one.

ideas?

Oh, got another one of those:

ppp4-121.dialup.amis.net - - [27/May/2001:16:30:43 +0200] "GET / HTTP/1.0" 200 6177 "http://www.iaea.org" "Mozilla/3.0 (compatible)"

I dont guess somoeone like the IAEA (international Atomic Agency) would actually link to our site.
