Blogger Cocks Up on Spam... Yet Again

I've written about the primitive and uneffective automated spam detection methods of Blogger in the past. That time Blogger decided that a brand new blog of mine - so new it had no content whatsoever - was a splog and they disabled it for about a week. How can their spam detection methods be that poor that they mistake a blog with no text content at all for a splog?

It appears that last Friday their inept spam algo whirred into action yet again, crippling the blogs of thousands of rule abiding Blogger users.

Blogger is rapidly getting a reputation for unwarranted censorship and poor reliability.

I hope they get their house in order pretty sharpish.
