Coincidence or sinister marketing plot?

Checking the referral log is always fun. Seeing new links in the referral log is even more fun, even if they're apparently random links that couldn't actually be referring to you.

Once in awhile you come across a link in the referral log and you just have to wonder if it's there for a purpose or if it's just a coincidence. This is such a link. If this is a new marketing technique, I may as well surrender now. They know too much about me.

UPDATE: And now my first Google search referra since I moved to the new domain: "Liberals stop West Nile Virus spraying". Nice to know that Ann Coulter is a fan of Off the Kuff.

I know from personal experience that Mac IE has a javascript bug which causes false referrers ... if you have a bookmarklet which loads another page then the current page is sent as the referrer (even though technically it's not).

Regardless of bugs, I'll just say...

You stud, you!
