Salut,

I went to http://validator.w3.org/check/referer, forgetting that my
browser sends no HTTP referrer.  (And hey, just because the HTTP
standard spells the word referrer wrong doesn't mean you have to.)  This
was on the page:
   URI: http://www.tedgoff.com/main.html__________________
The page I came from was:
http://churchill.factcomp.com/horde/test.php

This looks like a privacy leak and you may want to remedy it.
