Every time I check my referrers, I cannot help but notice all those utterly futile referrer spams from various order-your-pills-online sites. And each time I start thinking about various method to block them all (then I never implement these methods because I mostly don't care about refer spam :)
I checked a couple hundreds of referrer domains and, unsurprisingly, about 85% of the spammers have been registered via moniker.com, biggest spam domain registrar in this part of the known universe.
So, I thought, a method of getting rid of most of these would be to check every referrer's registrar and deny site access if it happens to be one of spamoniker's domain. A moniker checking script is an easy piece of code.
Of course, this would be totally overkill since it would add about a 0.2 second delay to every page load. But I just couldn't not blog about this and about the fact that moniker.com are a bunch of worthless scum.
