: There is a bug in IE 5 which I curse, even though I've never used IE 5 in my life. This bug sends the page you were on as the referrer to the page you go to, even if you typed in a new URL or selected a bookmark rather than clicking a link on the old page. This means that my tidy referrer logs are cluttered up by IE 5 users who go to my site or to Segfault and tell me what page they were on before, even if that page has no links to my site or to Segfault. It annoys me.

I'm pretty sure this only happens with IE 5 users, which is why I pin the blame on IE 5.
