22:37 jdurand Re http://irclog.perlgeek.de/marpa/2015-03-21#i_10319585 - I believe this is a spam referer
22:37 jdurand c.f. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Referer_spam
22:38 jeffreykegler Aha!  And in putting the URL on this IRC channel, I have just taken the bait. :-)
22:39 jdurand it is extremely annoying because it is affecting sites stats -; google on that and you will be invited to deny access to such sites based on some keywords - eventually these sites sometimes make money if you clik just to know what they are...
22:39 jeffreykegler That's why I was interested.  It's messing up my statistics.
22:40 jdurand Yes, you should have not put the URL -; but you did not know - that's exactly a fundamental of their technique - vicious isn't it
22:41 jdurand I understand -; If you have control on the access of your web server, you might want to protect your site against that
22:41 jeffreykegler I do not.  These are Github based web sites.
22:42 jdurand Some news - I relaized by re::engine::GNU, which is/should be a core dependency of MarpaX::Languages::M4 was wrong in UTF8 mode... and I learned the hard way the UTF8 thingies in XS -;
22:42 jdurand Ah... so you might want to contact github owners - this is affecting their whole service
22:43 jeffreykegler jdurand: I think I'll just go back to documenting strand parsing.
22:43 jeffreykegler My statistics are just not that important.
22:44 jdurand Ok - it's been calm since some days anyway - but this should be better soon -;
22:45 jeffreykegler "calm" meaning "quiet"?
22:45 jdurand oups, yes - sorry - my french anglicism
22:46 jdurand Ok, see you soon -; AFK
22:46 jeffreykegler Quiet is OK.  It can be read as indicating that our traffic is high quality, and that when folks have nothing significant to say, nothing gets said.
