Just looking at the source of the page, this pops out at me:

<script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript">
<!-- setTimeout('location.href = \'"Why do you want to know where I 
was before visiting you?"\'',10000);

As it has grabbed the location.href from my Junkbuster setup, would 
it be better if whatever mechanism generated the line of javascript 
checked if the Referer is valid, if not, put a default (the index 
page lets say) entry in there instead?

(I'm probably paranoid, but I prefer to have my HTTP-REFERER set that 
way... in case you were curious *:)
