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
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.
