So, for some crazy reason my blog was flagged by Blogger as a “spam blog”. I am not sure if that is because people were flagging it maliciously or what but after about a week of waiting (from the time I asked blogger to review) I received an email today telling me my blog is, in fact, NOT a spam blog. Hooray!
You may be wondering how I knew my blog was identified by blogger as a spam blog. Well, prior to today for about the past six months-year I have had to fill out a captcha just to post to my own blog. I had thought this captcha was just a side-effect to me demanding captcha’s on all comments people leave on the blog because it seemed to appear pretty closely to when I turned on that feature. However, there was a little text link beside the captcha that said “why am I seeing this” which I have always ignored. Curiosity piqued the other day though and I clicked it and found out I was considered a spam blog. Fortunately it was an easy, albeit slow, process for getting my blog’s name cleared.
The exact same thing happened to me on my blog. And just last week, I noticed that little link. I am pretty sure it wasn’t there ‘til recently, but I am so glad that I no longer need to deal with that.
