Popular posts from leaky bug-tracking systems
My web server logs referrer data whenever it’s available. It means I pick up a bunch of attempted referrer spam from some crazy Kyivstar GSM blocks, but it also means I can see when certain sites link to me. While this has shrunk over the years as browsers curtail what data they’re willing to convey to foreign origins, it’s not quite dead yet. Watching this over the past year or so has showed me that a handful of my posts are apparently very popular in bug tracking systems. I see quite a few inbound visitors from various corporate JIRA systems, and even a couple from some GitHub issue tracking pages.
This is certainly an interesting way to make a best of list.
