Dodgy referers

Just written some code to plug into my refererCode scripts to stop this referer spam nonsense... it's sure to be a bit too strict at first, but what it's going to do is check each new referer I get in my logs, request that page to see if there really is a link to my page on it, and if there's not log it. Too many pages without a proper link to me, and you're out of the game!

It's a shame to have to generate extra web traffic like this, hopefully it will be kept to a minimum though.

Going to set this message as the referer, so if you see this, you know what's going on! Any comments, leave them below...

Paul Clarke's - I live and work in Hythe near Folkestone, Kent. married to Clare and father to two, I am a code engineer, and I do mostly js, Node, python, ruby, and php. I like pubbing, restaurants, home automation and other diy jiggery-pokery, history, genealogy, TV, popbitch, squirrels, pirates ☠, lego, and time travel.
