The Latest Mean Message From Blogger

Your blog is locked

Blogger's spam-prevention robots have detected that your blog has characteristics of a spam blog. (What's a spam blog?) Since you're an actual person reading this, your blog is probably not a spam blog. Automated spam detection is inherently fuzzy, and we sincerely apologize for this false positive.

We received your unlock request on January 18, 2008. On behalf of the robots, we apologize for locking your non-spam blog. Please be patient while we take a look at your blog and verify that it is not spam.

Evil blogger! They once blocked all my comments for a day, but I think I would cry if they blocked my blog. Good luck!

I second TCH. I totally don't get blogger, they do as they please, seems like the effing standard keeps changing all the time.

Meanwhile, I am always being hit by real spam. When I was having trouble with Technorati the other week (trouble that continues) they said the word "jewelry" was what was setting them off. WTF?! Yeah, jewelry is very suspicious. I get MegaJewelry spam all the time. Not!

Mariposa said...

And others who are actually doing spam blogs or whatever gets away with it while innocent bloggers get blocked? Oh my...

I had problems before, somebody was copying an old blog of mine...everytime I post something, it automatically duplicates it...and they did not realize that...not after months I've been sending complaints...a real PITA!

Hope everything gets back to normal soon though!

The Guv'ner said...

Oh please. They just wanted a valid excuse to look at you with a riding crop and latex pants. I CAN SEE THROUGH YOU GOOGLE GUY!

Glad it's sorted out though. Let's hope they never lock for "mean thoughts and cursing" because I'd better say goodbye now.

I'm ETA-ing my last post to tell people where to find you..bah Blogger.

But at least you can see your blog and reply to comments- the Indian GOVERNMENT blocked Blogspot in India in July 2006 because some suspected terrorist types had a blog. Which meant that no one who used Blogger in India could see their blogs or anyone else's at all. The block got lifted soon enough because a lot of people were hacked off...the empty archive for July 2006 on my old blog stands as proof to that.

Ay yi yi! Floppy, that's terrible. Yes, at least I can still see things so far. I'm just scared they are going to decide that I AM spam and cut me off! Maybe it's something like what happened to Mariposa and someone else is running around with my content. Eek. Guv'ner...let's face it , they totally want a beating.
