kschwab,
Find the ip it's coming from and block it. Unless it's client side scripting, it's going back to a central computer (or series of) somewhere.
Block it.
If you want to be really cool. When you find the IP, catch the POST or GET, go out to theonion.com or some other random site, do a get yourself and hand it to their request.
The bad part about that is, you would be doing what they are but it would confuse the mess out of them for a moment ;o)
