Going Under Wraps

I have never had a problem with showing you my referers; I find no problem in showing you how folks find my Web site.

However, I have noticed in the last 72 hours that a disturbing number of mass-mail software Web sites have been linking directly into my /refer/ directory. I have no idea why they’d be doing that, but frankly, I see little need to give spammers any information that their little hearts desire.

As such, I’ve had to put a simple user/pass protection on the directory. :sigh:
