It wouldn't be hard to write a Perl script to rip through the log and
spit out the top referers, but I'd be hesitant to do that
automatically (i.e. from cron).  There should be some human
intervention to make sure you don't blackhole somebody that's valid.

There may even be a more elegant way to handle this but the iptables
filter was the first thing I thought of.
