_What do you guys think? There is still time to address this for NewsGator v1. I'm leaning toward defaulting to no referrer, and allowing the user to override this with a custom referrer string. Another option is what Aggie does (or used to), where the referrer could be something like http://www.newsgator.com/referrers?usersite=www.rassoc.com/gregr/weblog/.

If you were being strict about things, you’d probably say that the referrer should be blank and just use the User Agent. I think people are pretty used to looking at their logs by referrer and so it wouldn’t be a great stretch to also include a custom string for this so that the information is all logged in one place. I think it should be one of those two alternatives, though: blank or custom. A static value linking to the user agent doesn’t add much value.
