Hi everybody!

I started using BlogEngine two years ago.

I use it to write ASP.NET related articles, and was proud seeing dayly visits were constantly growing.

In the last few days I had a bad surprise: most of the incoming requests were only Referrer Spamming...

So I decided to get rid of this new kind of spamming... and wrote an article about implementing a HttpModule/HttpHandler based Anti-Referrer-Spam-Bot-Trap.

I am testing it in my own blog and it seems working fine.

I thought other bloggers may be interested in this solution, and maybe it could be integrated in upcoming releases of BlogEngine..?

Give it a look. Feedbacks and comments are welcome.

Bye!
