    Deal with referer spam with aStatSpam

    Hello everyone,

    A few days ago I had problem with some referer spammers. The chronicle of this can be found here

    I made a search in the G and the only tools I found are only "cut" those spammers from your statistics, but they still let them connect to your server, which in many cases produces server overhead.

    So I created a tool of mine which is called aStatSpam, and you can find it here and I thought I sould share it with other webmasters.

    I know that this thread is some kind of self promoting, but this tool is free and I will propably release it later under the GPL license so I thought it wouldn't be problem to introduce it here. If it is mods please remove this thread and accept my apologies.

    By the way as it has just released I would like to have some feedback on it, so if you have some time please evaluate it and let me know what you think of it.
