    I had a bad experience with disavow tools. I added a disavow tools file for each of my webistes. Then one day, 1 month and a half after submitting files, i have experienced a strange effect.
    All my incoming links for each of my websites were gone. It was like google did reset my incoming links lists and recrawling my websites from scratch.

    I wonder if it is possible to avoid disavow tools and blocking http referers instead by using HTTP_REFERER in htaccess as follows:
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} xlinklist\.com [NC,OR]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} adultwebdirect\.com [NC,OR]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} pornsubmits\.com [NC,OR]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} pureeditor\.com
    RewriteRule .* - [F]

    This generates a 403 error when visitors (and bots) come from websites that have been listed above.

    Do you think it will work?
