Since, January 9th, my blog has been locked by one of Blogger’s robots for having “spam-like” characteristics. Â Without giving any warning, my blog was locked down pending human review. Â It’s been nearly a week later and I’m still waiting for some humans to show up and review my blog.
There’s no doubt that spam’s a problem and that blog spam is proliferating, but Blogger’s procedures are extremely draconian. Â I should have received a warning and given the opportunity to challenge. Â But, Blogger just unilaterally shut my site down.
Anyways, this is my first entry on my new Movable Type powered blog. Â It’s kind of plain around here, but I think it’ll give me more flexibility than Blogger in the long run.
