ReferrerCop parses Apache log files and AWStats data files and removes entries for referring URLs that match a list of known referrer spammers. Logs can be run through ReferrerCop either before or after they're processed by AWStats (or before they're processed by any other log analyzer) to eliminate annoying referrer spam from Web statistics.
