Your IP solution is more expensive in my opinion. It is expensive to you,
and does little to solve the problem. You are not identifying the client.
You are identifying what your server thinks the client is. BIG difference.


Especially with the oodles of NATing going on in our lovely world.

Sorry if those question are dummy, but -

1. How do I check for *no* referer field ?

2. Are you sure only 5% of the requests will have no referer field, 
considering the number of surfers using firewalls ?

3. Why is it you think checking for no referer field is more expensive, 
server side, than the solution I've offered ?

Thanks, Uri.
