Violating what???!

So I'm working on a new post for Live is a Canvas... and I go to add a picture and get this screen:

What the heck!? What did I violate?

Here is their Terms of Service and Content Policy. I have no idea what I've violated.... weird.

Oh.. just got this email:

Dear Blogger user,

This is a message from the Blogger team.

Your blog, at, has been identified as a potential spam blog. For an explanation of what spam blogs are, please see Blogger Help:

You will not be able to publish posts to your blog until we review your site and confirm that it is not a spam blog. To request a review, please fill out the form found here:

We will take a look at your blog and unlock it within four business days. Please note that if we do not hear from you within 20 days, we will remove your blog. If this blog does not belong to you, then you do not have to do anything. Any other blogs you may have will not be affected.

Since you are an actual person reading this, your blog is probably not spam. We find spam by using an automated classifier. Automatic spam detection is inherently fuzzy, and occasionally a blog is flagged incorrectly. We sincerely apologize for this erroneous result. By using this kind of system, however, we can dedicate more storage, bandwidth, and engineering resources to users like you instead of to spammers.

Thank you for your understanding and for your help in our spam-fighting efforts.


The Blogger Team


That's nice.


  1. i hate blogger right now. i have been getting error messages for a week straight. good luck spammer. :)

  2. that is strange. blogger has been acting pretty funky the last few days!!!

  3. huh... I've had no problems.
    You'd better keep those spam blogs in check Nic!! LOL!

  4. Blogger has been a pain in my butt lately when I post comments I have to copy them (just in case I need to paste them) because it has been giving me some funky-a$$ error message & kicking my comments off? Go figure!

  5. Could they spend their time chasing down real spam blogs? No? Why not?
