Re: German spammers? In reply to
I did everthing suggested here:

1)In ADD.CGI, under the sub process_form,

replace:
# Check the referer.
if (@db_referers and $ENV{'HTTP_REFERER'}) {

with:
# Check the referrer.
if (@db_referers) {

2) In LINKS.CFG at the Referers area
Add your domain, with single quotes as shown below. This will tell links2.0 to only accept submissions from your domain, ie. the add.cgi at your site:

# Referers -- which hosts are allowed to add to your database.
@db_referers = ('ezfriend.com','www.ezfriend.com','64.176.68.173');


And I am STILL getting bloody spam from the Germans, what a pain in the ass...

This time it all came from urbia.com. Is there any other way to stop this? Excluding certain domains won't really work since they appear to be coming from different domains all the time, not to mention that there is no trace back to any domain, other than through the form input. Here is a sample submission e-mail, aaaclipart.com [209.50.251.115] is the name of the server that the search engine is on:
