No I am sorry for the trouble?...UPDATE!!!#2

As you can see I can post again. I did not get a email from blogger notifying me I could post once again. No apology...nothing...I checked it for the third time today and it was unblocked. I wonder if it has anything to do with this....

Who is responsible for shutting down a number of anti-Obama Blogspot accounts?

Yes I was interviewed late yesterday but he didn't use any of it. This was also cross posted at No Quarter.

Come Along Way was also reinstated today. I haven't checked the others but I am sure if they aren't they soon will be. I hope....

I have posted at my new site today McCain Dem/Clinton Republican...and if you check my About page there you will find a list of those blocked....I will be up dating it as soon as I gather the information I need to do so.

I won't be deleting this blog just yet but I won't be posting here so be sure to book mark my new home. McCain Dem/Clinton Republican at Word Press. Thank you for stopping by and for your support that you have sent me via comments and emails.

Google and the Anti-Obama Bloggers

UPDATE: I just got this....

What is wrong with that you ask??? I am not GeekLove. Here is Geeks place.

Hi there,

On behalf of the Blogger Team, I want to apologize for the recent trouble
you've had with your locked blog. Automated spam detection is not yet a
perfect science, and although we are constantly working to improve our
tools, it appears that our filters have caused some Blogger accounts to
mistakenly be blocked from creating new posts.

While we are still investigating, we believe this may have been caused by
mass spam e-mails mentioning the "Just Say No Deal" network of blogs,
which in turn caused our system to classify the blog addresses mentioned
in the e-mails as spam. Regardless, we have restored posting rights to
your blog, and it is very important to us that Blogger remain a tool for
political debate and free expression.

So once again, we apologize for the inconvenience, and thank you for your
patience as we looked into the problem.

The Blogger Team

This is a BLOG. There are other very important things going on in the world to whine and do something about.

It seems that the "if not Hillary..." crowd is a bit quick to cry conspiracy! Please, please, please, we do not need anymore bitter angry people in this world! Turn around you attitude now! You still have a chance!

if you read the email it said

"While we are still investigating, we believe this may have been caused by
mass spam e-mails mentioning the "Just Say No Deal" network of blogs,"

Who else would be doing this other than Obama supporters?
