    I'm checking out my Awstats and finding referrals from

    HTTP://A-URL-IS-ALL-IN-CAPS-EXAMPLE.COM/wp-login.php

    Anyone else getting these referrals? also getting

    HTTP://ANOTHER-EXAMPLE.COM/wp-comments-post.php

    Any ideas?

    I'm running a WP Network with the latest version of WP.

    That is exactly what I was wanting to know. What are sites like this right here:

    hotfrog.in/Products/security/Gujarat/Surat

    There are a bunch of sites like this and it annoys me. What are these site? Are they set-up by affiliates hoping you'll buy something from one of their links? It's retarded. I've been seeing sites like this on the Internet for years and have no freakin' idea what they are for.

    Glad you asked. Hope somebody answers.

    Oops, didn't close the link tag, sorry!

  4. The last thing we want is an actual LINK to that kind of site.

    They're spammers/splogs. Just block or ignore 'em.

    but sometimes they have real nice things to say...lies!

    seriously though, does Akismet block against this junk? i've never used it but i've been thinking about ip banning, but that could cut legitimate traffic.
