    It's there for me as well. It's really annoying, and I see no reason why it was shoehorned in.

    Seems to be a way to report refferer domain as spam.

    But it's not working right now apparently, nothing happens when you click on it.

    Same here...
    It appeared today. I keep screenshots of stats, and yesterday or before yesterday it was not there.
    The sites are not spammers at all.. They are referrers from campaigns or facebook / social or search results.
    I hope it has not 'sent' these clicks we did when trying to figure out what this link is all about as reports to any database and sites being accused of spamming for no reason.
    Will someone from Jetpack Support reply to this ?

    I bet that it's a new feature, still in development.

    But no fear about it, it's only a switch that will let you to mark a referrer as spam, similar to the same feature you have for comments.

    Hi all!

    As Samuel said, it's a new feature that is currently under development. It was available for Jetpack sites for a short period, but we have since turned it off for now while we work out some kinks. You can learn more about what the purpose of this link is, here:
