>On April 21, 2009, I received a note from Blogger informing me that my blog was locked because its robot spiders have characterized my blog as a spam blog.
It seems that a disgruntled reader or someone unhappy with my response to his or her comment reported my blog as spam and Blogger automatically locked my blog to prevent me from spamming.
On the same day I received the notice from Blogger, I notified them that my blog was not spam. According to Blogger, they would review my case in one or two days. After two days, I sent Blogger an email and received no response.
On April 28, one week later, I sent another note to Blogger requesting them to unlock my blog. They responded by saying that I would receive a reply in one or two days. Since then, I have sent two more emails and have received no response from Blogger.
Today is Monday, May 4, 2009. According to Blogger, in 7 more days they will delete my blog because this is what they do to blogs they consider to be spam.
A note to Blogger: My Blog Is Not Spam.
Since I have sent three emails to Blogger with no response, I expect that my blog will be deleted in the next few days.
I have been considering moving my blog to WordPress and I think that this action taken by Blogger is the proverbial straw that broke the camel’s back. In the next few days I will be evaluating my options. I will keep you informed.
In the mean time, I will say again: My Blog Is Not Spam.
