Spam I am

If you've tried to visit here for any of the last several days, you probably weren't able to pull anything up. One day, you could only access the site at Another day, a 1 went where the 5 was. Both days, the true address, lacking any numbers, drew a blank. Code 404. Error.

Best I could figure it is that Blogger's automated "robots," things that scan Blogger's many blogs, found too many suspicious keywords here (Ukraine, women, girls girls girls!) and decided this was your run of the mill spam-blog, filled with links to Viagra and Cialis and only the occasional quote from Russian literature -- I am an angry, a bitter man -- to try to appear otherwise.

God, I'm not really helping my case, am I?

Anyways, the long and short of it is my blog was deleted. Again and again. With no warning, no due process. Such is life in post 9/11-America.

One thing it did do was inspire me to do the one thing I haven't been doing much of these last few weeks -- posting. What's up with that? I don't know.

Maybe I'll move to a new site, with a new address, just to shake things up, just to live with the promise of a more stable future.

We'll see.

I agree I think Blogger is very very embarrassed by it all. But thankfully the staff have manged to fix it but for how long I am not sure.

What is clear is that we, your blog readers, want you to continue posting your creative insights into what is a developing phenomena and possible future basis for generations to come. Atleast until they introduce the brtave new world of genetic science dating.

404 codes with all my blogs gone, in a blink of an eye. I just had to type this out because I have that terrible gut feeling of not being able to do anything.

I've written to Google and Blogger through their online email form sender, but have not heard from them.

It happened without warning to me. I got a couple of spam bots to begin with and then BAM, Everything was gone.

Very frustrating and potentially the lose of a years worth of work on many blogs.

To Blogger and Google if your reading this please check the emailtalk and give it back to me.


Trying to stay calm...

Breath in, Breath out.

Upset ONE

Well that is a shame buddy, I hope you find a new home soon for your blog.
