Google Blogger Statistics SUCK !!!

In Google Blogger Statistics, only the top 10 referring sites are shown as below. As bots take over and with referral spam this feature is completely useless. Google should do a better job of handling the Statistics feature.

Checking the server log files for statistics of a self hosted blog is also a bit difficult because of the spam. It would be a good to have `reliable regularly updated publicly accessible list of spam sites`, which can be integrated with a script to get useful data out of the server logs.

Edit: Looks like Google Analytics is doing a good job of filtering the bots.
