The last few days have been stressful. Blogger, the hosts of this blog, in all their intelligence, marked this blog as "spam", threatened to delete it, and blocked me from publishing any content on it - even an update to an old post. I filled out the Blogger "verification" form, wrote emails of complaint to them, asked advice from helpful bloggers (thank you Violet, Jonathan, Gordon and Viviane) and waited with baited breath to find out what would happen.
Thank god someone somewhere has seen some light (and pulled some strings) because finally I have received word that this blog will be allowed to continue and won't be deleted from their servers. Hurrah: three and a half years of writing not wasted then...
Suffice it to say, I am not in the least bit happy about all this: I don't want to be with a service that can indiscriminately prevent me from being able to blog when and how I like. I think a move to another service is long overdue: I plan to migrate to my own website domain soon.
Until then, let's hope I can carry on blogging here - minus the accusations that what I write is "spam". Honestly, is saying the word "cock" really that much of a big fucking deal?
