So you (or your sysop, network administrator, or something) have
disabled the referer header.

HTML code doesn't do anything.  It can't "detect no-referer"
any more than, say, ASCII code can.  Sure, the no-referer
page can give you other options - doesn't it already?
But there's no possible way to validate the referring page
if your privacy settings withhold that information.
