    Hello,

    I've only been at this several months so I haven't experienced this - someone has linked to me with a "?source=theirdomainname.com" tag. And of course it's reflected in my viewed url. Why and what should I do about it?

    Thanks -

    They're probably doing it a) to get you to view their site - I believe there is a growing trend in "log spamming" or b) to make you aware that they're linking to you and hope you'll link back.

    I may be myopic, but I can't really see a downside or a reason to do anything about it?

    BTW - welcome to ABW !

    Are you Crazy?

    Crazy-

    Thanks, it was making me a little ... um ... crazy. As long as it doesn't cause tech. problems with my cookies I can better. I actually like the site and it's very relevant to that page.
