Friday we reported that Live.com Is Not Passing Referer Information, the realization about this in the SEO and Webmaster community sent ripples throughout many of the forums. MSNdude replied to the thread at WebmasterWorld stating that this was a bug.
This is NOT by design. We're looking into it. Thanks for telling us.
So rest assured, I am sure there will be a fix pretty quickly. Well, not over the weekend, but hopefully some time today or early this week.
Continued forum discussion at WebmasterWorld.
