Francois Lane, the publisher of the Zoyth and Amazon weblogs, is offering to fill weblogs with thousands of phony referrers for $1,000 U.S. He's hit this weblog three times today from the IP address 207.253.71.48, putting his own URL as the referral. (Via Blogroots.)

I've made a URL blacklist for the Python Community Server referrer log analysis that others are welcome to use if they want to block advertising from their logs.
