My blog is up and running today after being down yesterday because Blogger had to do a "spam review" of my blog.
For some reason, the fine folks at Blogger had the notion that Legal Schnauzer was throwing off spam.
The Hissyspit journal at Democratic Underground says a number of liberal/progressive bloggers have experienced similar problems in recent days and hosts an interesting discussion on the matter.
One reader notes that it's possible that similar problems are happening with conservative bloggers. But the reader at No. 15 says it has happened to a number of liberal bloggers because the flag button at Blogger can be easily abused.
Right wingers can pick out a blog they don't like and click repeatedly on the flag button, claiming it's a spam blog. The blog is automatically delisted (locked up was the term I was given) until a human review is completed.
Sounds like No. 15 knows what he/she is talking about. If that's the case, I'm going to take it as a compliment that right wingers felt my blog was deserving of such hi jinks.
