I have not been able to get a direct answer to a question I have. I will give thanks to everybody who answers in a helpful way. I understand the purpose of faking the referrer, and I have used this method successfully for a while now. But what is the purpose of "blanking" the referrer? When I asked this before I was told that it does not replicate direct-linking the offer. So what is the purpose of "faking"? What does this method replicate to the end viewer of your traffic stats? Email campaigns?
