I'm referring to THIS THREAD
Since you're checking the referrer as an anti-leech method, do downloaders such as leechget, netants, gozilla, etc, etc still work (since they don't send referrers)?

Referrer checking as 'authentification method' has been in place since mid 2000 - that's nothing new. If it worked before, it'll still. Normally, it shouldn't be a problem, because the browser sends the refererrer and only after that, the visitor is 'forwarded' to the download (which some download manager then could catch). I have never really tried that for a long time though - if it doesn't work, you can thank Delos for it.

I use netants and mozilla, so I have to cut&paste actual dl links. I'm not sure what I used when I dled all the comics before (which I lost when my comp crashed :( ).

That won't work, no. The comics didn't get a download script until a year ago or so, so that might have worked for longer before.
