mturk hammering my server

vBSEO is filling my inbox with linkback notifications that look like this:

http://107.21.250.135/oturk/hit?id=257892&assignmentId=25J14IXKO2L9KJ2G02XX9YO GZTWCBF&hitId=20QEBDPGFL6VURK3DJED2IOXCFI3I2&worke rId=A3A4RYVP2XLKB7&turkSubmitTo=https%3A%2F%2Fwww. mturk.com

It appears that someone it trying to do some automated market research for Vimpat (searching for forum discussions referencing it).

I don't quite understand this mturk Amazon web service, but I do understand that my site is being hammered by traffic related to this market research crap. I'd like to put an end to it, but I can't seem to find any information on the mturk system how to do this.

I can adjust my .htaccess to block requests that have 107.21.250.135 as the referrer, but that isn't foolproof. Ideas?

I'm not sure I understand you clearly. Is your website being flooded or your e-mail? Or they are using kind of a form on your website to submit information that you don't want? Provide details.
