What Are Spam Blogs?

Apparently Unbelievably, Gates of Vienna is…at least, according to Blogger.
Today at Jihad Watch.
Gates of Vienna blocked by Blogger
The anti-anti-jihadists, intellectually and morally bankrupt as they are, continue to try to silence those of us whom they cannot answer. I just got this email from Baron Bodissey of the superb Gates of Vienna blog:
I just attempted to post at Gates of Vienna, and was told by an automatic message that our blog is suspected of being a spam blog, and has been blocked by Blogger.
The full text of the message:
“This blog has been locked by Blogger’s spam-prevention robots. You will not be able to publish your posts, but you will be able to save them as drafts.”
And here’s what Blogger says about what we are suspected of:
“What Are Spam Blogs?“As with many powerful tools, blogging services can be both used and abused. The ease of creating and updating webpages with Blogger has made it particularly prone to a form of behavior known as link spamming. Blogs engaged in this behavior are called spam blogs, and can be recognized by their irrelevant, repetitive, or nonsensical text, along with a large number of links, usually all pointing to a single site.”
I followed Blogger’s instructions, typed in the visible letters to prove that I was not a bot, and am now awaiting a response from the Powers That Be.
In the meantime, I can’t even post a notice at Gates of Vienna about what is going on.
If you don’t think Gates of Vienna is a spam blog, please post a notice about what has happened. If you know of a way to contact Blogger or Google, please let them know that Gates of Vienna is *not* a spam blog, regardless of how politically incorrect it is.
