Hi! I'm using dasblog 2.2 and since last week I receive a lot referral hits from single IP. How can I block this IP? Putting appropriate IP to Blacklist editbox doesn't block it. May be there is any way to do this?
thanks! Any help is appreciated.

You could try updating the ip in the "blockedips.config" file in the "SiteConfig" directory of dasBlog.
You could also implemnt the Akismet service, I believe referrals are also vetted there, or you can turn off referrals, they are over rated.

Thanks! Looks like it works :)
I just add IP in to blockedips.config file.

Hi again!

Since I'm moving RSS aggregator to google ( I have high activity form feedburner in Referrers tab:
User Agent Hits
FeedBurner/1.0 ( 75
and each day about 60-90 hits. In Aggreagator Activity tab I have about 30 hits from FeedBurner every day. Is this normal?

Thanks a lot!
