theplanet.com referral spam

i realized today that most of referral spams i’m getting are sent by the theplanet.com hosting service. take a look
 
that is gross! here’s a more complete list. either theplanet is getting paid for doing this kind of nasty work or someone is seriously abusing their service. either way theplanet.com will be blocked by me. if you use textism referral script, go to your phpmyadmin and open your refer table and type in:

SELECT host, refer FROM `refer` WHERE host like '%theplanet.com%'

and see what kind of referrals you are getting from them. most of the referrals from them are porn sites. recently i started getting john kerry referral spam from them just like this guy. i plan to write to abuse@theplanet.com to find out what’s going on.
