"...a massive Referrer Spam attack is ongoing (and apparently not just 
against my site), with dozens of distinct IP addresses trying to stuff 
my server logs with links to blue-pill Tonga subdomains: buy.to, 
get.to, dive.to, hey.to, drop.to, etc."

"Now I've seen some referrer spam in the logs before, one or two a day 
nothing major, but this constituted something more akin to a total 
onslaught." <http://heksie.co.za/blog/pivot/entry.php?id=91>
