  1. When I first started a blog on blogger, the bots detected it as spam within a week. I got an automated message saying that if I replied or something, they’d know it was a real person running the blog and restore it within 48 hours. About a week later, I recceived another automatic notification to the effect that my blog had been restored. But it hadn’t. I never managed to contact anyone and eventually moved to another host. My ‘current’ blog has not experienced any problems.

    My blog, Jews sans frontieres, Antizionism vs antisemitism, and many other explicitly antizionist blogs survive on blogger. While I certainly wouldn’t rule out deliberate interference, under the circumstances I’m inclined to suspect a glitch in their system. That’s not necessarily good news. In my case, it was never rectified. If it does result from a complaint, there’s always the prospect of redress, I suppose.

  2. Yesterday when I was visiting some of my favorite bloggers, many of them were having the same trouble as Jerry Haber. Funny thing is, their politics and views are the opposite of Jerry’s. I guess you completely erred when jumping on the ‘blame the bad Jews’ bandwagon. Will we be seeing an apology in the near future? I bet not.

  3. This is not the first time and will not be the last time that bloggger or blogspot site has been frozen, allegedly by a robot for alleged spam!! Many bloggers’ blogsites by have been frozen by google, not once but repeatedly ( one of them being my friend). Some of the boggers quit and formed their independent website e.g. Palestine Think Tank. Yes, some bloggers are allowed to function without interference but it is just a matter of time when something written in the blog will upset someone at google and the site will be frozen.

  4. @Sarah: I didn’t “blame the bad Jews” I blamed the settler extremists. If they are Jews they are a grotesque caricature of them.

    Jerry Haber believes they likely had a hand in his blog’s being locked. I don’t disagree w. him. Unless you can prove otherwise, I trust Jerry’s view on this a little more than yours, thank you.

  5. Yet another reason not to choose Blogger as a blogging platform. I was particularly tickled by this statement from Blogger:

    At Blogger, we strongly believe that you own and should control your posts and other data.

    “Except when we have one of our many technical meltdowns which prevents you from ‘owning or controlling your own posts.'”
