Did anyone else read this message? I find it rather odd.

Your blog is marked as spam
Blogger's spam-prevention robots have detected that your blog has characteristics of a spam blog.
Since you're an actual person reading this, your blog is probably not a spam blog. Automated spam detection is inherently fuzzy, and we sincerely apologize for this false positive.

We received your unlock request on July 15, 2009. On behalf of the robots, we apologize for locking your non-spam blog. Please be patient while we take a look at your blog and verify that it is not spam.


  1. It's just their bot noticing all the traffic we have here and all the links that are posted. It'll be fixed in a day or two, since we are obviously not a spam blog.

  2. I received an email asking about it from blogger. I sent the required request back to them. Let's be patient & see what happens!
    It sure scared me thou!!

  3. Hi,

    The following message is now showing up on my dashboard for this blog.

    "This blog has been locked due to possible Blogger Terms of Service violations. You may not publish new posts until your blog is reviewed and unlocked.

    This blog will be deleted within 20 days unless you request a review."

    So hopefully it will be fixed soon since Shari sent back the response. :-)

  4. Its scary, but come to think of it not surprising. This blog grew in a matter of weeks, filling up with the members, all the messages and links, and all the followers.

    It is nice to know that they do have safeguards in place.
