Referer Karma added

To accompany Bad behaviour and Spam Karma 2 is now Drdave’s other contribution to blogging harmony – Referer Karma. Checking site logs, I’m getting the usual blitz of junk but BB and SK2 do not do anything for referral spam. RK does. I also noticed that I am being linked to be at least 3 forums which are private. While I don’t check everyone who links in, if something isn’t picked up in the feed searches but is high on the clickthroughs here, it makes me wonder. And these 3 were. Rather than fiddle about with .htaccess rules, it’s much simpler to install RK and glance at that.
Browsers was the reason I was looking ….. here are some stats (these are for hits):

OS
Windows
  148827   83.5 %
Unknown
  12977   7.2 %
Macintosh
  11478   6.4 %
Linux
  4564   2.5 %

Browser
MS Internet Explorer
  97098   54.5 %

Unknown ?
  12111   6.8 %
Safari
  7184   4 %
Mozilla

Opera
  2968   1.6 %
Netscape
  1297   0.7 %

Errors
403 1168 hits
404 3151 hits

And here some very odd numbers:
More than 1000 hits are for MSIE 5.0 or below (earliest hit 3.01)
More than 3000 hits for MSIE 5.5 and below
Around 500 hits are for Netscape 5 or below (earliest hit 3.01)
Earliest Firefox hit version 0.10
72 hits for Lynx
13 for WebTV

MSIE 3.01 ???? good grief ….
