Argh! Glad to know WP now wants them reported to support - just frustrated as earlier I was told via support ticket - don't bother, we're on it, don't need all this... So, will now start snowing them under... @ roads of stone and raincoaster - actually, my blog was new to WP late May, and I've been buried in spam referrers since the first week - as best I can tell doing the maths every day (stats minus spam count) I have typically 20 - 30 hits a day, half or more of which are spam (winewomantravel blog). I recently began working on a commercial blog established a year ago typically 40 - 60 hits a day with spikes over a hundred on new post days - and not one spammer. So, can't figure logic of who catches it. I'm on 2010 theme, commercial blog was MistyLook and we converted to 2010 in July, so no connection there, apparently. Thanks for update raincoaster.
