Prank or paranoid?

Prank or paranoid? Just spotted a referrer linking from Is that a prank? I know you can forcefully set referrers and I would assume that those guys would know how to avoid such an easy trace back clue. What do you think?

Oh. I see what you mean. Then go diretly to the place where I found the referrer. Right hand column, towards the end under "Aktuelle Referrer", if that is easier.

This would be, at best, a topic for MetaTalk...

You are asking a personal tech support question on MetaFilter. Huh?

I got that in my logs, too, evidently a lot of people have. Looks like a prank. Spoofing your referrer is fairly easy to do.
