So someone is sending fake referrers that get into peoples favorite hidden data collection tool, and these people have summarily complained here. And I'm supposed to care?

Who knew, vacuuming up data from your visitors may not be all its made up to be. Someone should hand this guy a medal. I should look and figure out if browser extensions can manipulate the referrer yet, spamming all those trackers and analytics services with fake data seems like a wonderful idea.
