Spam Blog Still

On September 23, I first blogged that Blogger had word verification inititated for me to post. I was designated a spam blog. When, after two weeks had elapsed past my notification, the word verification still was not turned off, I notified them again. Today, I sent the third notification.

The failure of Blogger to respond appropriately only makes me believe my blog is politically incorrect in their eyes. So Blogger, is it my support of McCain/Palin, or my advocacy of gun rights that has you doing this? 'Fess up.

???? Hell I'm worse than you are X, sounds like a software glitch to me! If not, then I'm gonna be in trouble too :-)

I'd just switch to Wordpress.

Something is going on, my comment on the "From the WSJ" piece went unpublished. I may have hit a nerve with whoever controls the posting. If that is true, we are in much more trouble than I ever imagined!

As the Cranky Professor pointed out, Blogger eats a big bowl of dick day in and day out. Go to Wordpress, come and join us in the light.

They did the same thing to my wife's cooking blog so maybe it's not content.

When browsing blog roll links for gun blogs, I constantly run into gun blogs that were hosted on blogspot that have seemed to have disappeared.
I cannot accept that this is some coincidence.
One example:
"Sorry, the blog at redstradingpost.blogspot.com has been removed."
Seriously, transfer your stuff to wordpress.com where they don't discriminate.

Xavier, I would just like to say, while you and I have many political disagreements, I absolutely appreciate your blog, your opinion, and the consummate right to express oneself via whatever means technology might allow. I'm sorry blogger is so frustrating.

If I can help by emailing blogger, please let me know.

Sincerely, your regular reader,
Sean g.

Step #1: Buy your own domain and set blogger to re-direct that to your existing blog.
Step #2: Wait a while so your readers start using the new domain instead of the blogger-based URL.
Step #3: Switch to Wordpress and, again, set them to re-direct from your existing blog.
Most of your readers will see un-interrupted blogging.
(Blogger has the instructions needed to get your own domain and re-direct it to a blogger blog.)

Blogger's problem is that any obamabot can accuse a blog of being a spammer haunt, and make it stick.

I only use blogger as a placeholder to point at my real blog ... some blogs require a blogger account in order to post.
