I have been seeing some odd stuff on the Analytics plug in for my blogos lately so I have been deactivating filters to try to isolate the issue.

Today, without any filters (except for my own IP & the one to stop known bots & spiders) I see that there have been 55 views of the page title = vc.ru/n/google-russian-spammer.

That is very funny .. they even say they are spammers & that they are Russian .. not hard to spot. It does prove the filter to stop bots & spiders does not help in this case.
