SCRIPTING -- Dave Winer decided to pare back his referrers by blocking obvious referrer spam to his online listing of referrers. I think he could have used a SixApart strategy and keep the referrer page out of view of the public. That way, the spammers cannot see their handiwork, the site owner can see the referrers and a referrer page attractor loses its lustre as a spam attractor.
Dave Winer's referrers are listed here: http://archive.scripting.com/stats/referers
Bonus Link: Russell Beattie's referrers. He explains why his blog may be getting nearly ten times more activity than Dave Winer's. The reason is linked to a story about an Apple mobile phone, which is a question asked by David Stewart during a Nokia Media Briefing in Dublin tpday.
