Turning Away Links Based on Referrer

Scripting News: Does anyone know what Dave is talking about? Why would someone do this?

“Can you believe it — there are weblogs that turn away traffic based on referrer. This is bad practice. These people seriously need to take a refresher course in what the Web is about and how important links are and stop screwing around with them. I won’t read sites that do this, and I certainly won’t point to them. You should let the authors of the sites know that you won’t either. If they don’t want to be linked to, just take the site off the Web.”
