    For some reason we have gotten a large number of vistors from this referrer in our logs:

    www.abest-online.com

    Anyone else seen this, I don't know who they are nor do we have any relationship with them, nor ever have. They don't appear to do anything but list merchant affiliate links with one stagnant banner....

    I was getting things like that for a while. Apparently there are services that pay to put false referrers in webmasters' logs, apparently in the theory that the webmasters will click the links and voila, free traffic for the sites using these services. The stupidest kind of spam yet.
