Referral spam – How annoying!

My weblog has been getting hundreds of spam referrals per day from poker and casino sites. I don’t know what prompted this but it just won’t stop. And to think that I hate gambling!!! Grrr!

Does anyone have an idea how to tell them to stop using their crawler on my site? The IP address is not fixed and they don’t use a fixed string for their user agent (grrrr!).

UPDATE: Problem fixed with a new version of my weblog software which now checks for spam referrals.
