Referer checking sucks really badly. You have to configure your server with
modules or scripting or whatnot; if you can only upload files, you're toast.
And even once you've got that working, your users behind Referer-stripping
firewalls are left high and dry.

"He was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities;
the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are
healed. We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to his
own way; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all." [Isaiah
