    Live Referrer Spam
    Getting tired of my WP blogs (and I'm sure other sites) getting pounded with spam coming through the Live search engine.

    Anyone else seeing this?

    Usually IPs starting with 65.55, but the last numbers being a huge range.

    Is that a safe IP set to block?

    You'd be blocking almost 65,000 IP addresses. I don't think that would be good...

    Interesting. I happened to run across some of these in referrer stats just yesterday. I checked one out and it was a full [web]page ad. I wondered why this would have been a referrer to my site. Now I know. Not sure I understand the impetus though.

    I would have no problem blocking this; 65.55.165.*
