They are called redirects, and only them have killed our beloved CS1.6, you can fiind hundred of them but they are fake and they redirect to just 1 server.

Please stop opening fake redirects.

But you see situation in CS:GO in Moscow location? One project have 1500 real servers and some project's have +-1000 fake servers. I lost online on my servers, lost money and old players. It is necessity to survive.

This is indeed getting out of hand but combating spam with spam is not going to be helpful for anyone.
Instead pressure valve with for example steam support tickets or trough the mailing lists to start revising the master server protocol so that these spam servers won't get listed. For example by forcing the server to initialize a ticket announcing its own IP and Port with the correct ticket generation mechanism they already use for the steam id's before it is listed.

For the time being for the Half-Life 2 Deathmatch players i have put a script here that players can use to block all the known IP's which you can also find on that URL.

I am willing to expand this to other games as well if there is enough demand and valve is slow in fixing the issue.
