technical difficulties? must be a lefty conspiracy!

skippy junior, as you may know, is the temporary home of skippy international, and eveyone who has made their way here (both of you) are aware that blogger has blogged up and incorrectly "locked" several blogs, which were mistakenly designated as "spam blogs" by the blogger bots.

on today's blogger buzz page, there was this message:

spam fridays

while we wish that every post on this blog could be about cool features or other blogger news, sometimes we have to step in and admit a mistake.

we've noticed that a number of users have had their blogs mistakenly marked as spam, and wanted to sound off real quick to let you know that, despite it being friday afternoon, we are working hard to sort this out. so to those folks who have received an email saying that your blog has been classified as spam and can't post right now, we offer our sincere apologies for the trouble.

we hope to have this resolved shortly, and appreciate your patience as we work through the kinks.
apparently, some hardly-ever-right wing blogs have been locked also. so what do the rightists do? of course: blame the left.

tell me once more how progressives love free speech.

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.
its the same message concrete bob received and rosemary posted for him.

this is bulls**t as it appears that someone does not approve of the idea of free speech especially when the speech doesn't conform to their ideas.

online activists thought to be loyal to barack obama are once against using google's software tools to target rival political blogs for elimination as spam blogs. this occurred earlier this year when democratic bloggers with a preference for hillary clinton also found themselves locked out of their own blogs, all because of spurious and apparently orchestrated claims that these blogs are spam blogs. pro-obama activists were blamed for those attempts at censorship as well.

like john at argghhh!, i don't think for a second that the obama campaign has any official knowledge of this attempt to hamstring or terminate rival political viewpoints, but as obama once won an election by exercising procedural tricks to have his rivals thrown off the ballot, it is certainly in line with the kind of character he has displayed in the past.
(via)

that's right. a world-wide breakdown of cyber communication has to be because of obama supporters. because after all, those uppity negro-lovers are just clever enought to shut down a handful of small-traffic rightist blogs, without being able to disable fox news.com or rush limbaugh's blog or anything, because, come on, confederate yankee is soooooo threatening to our fearless leader's socialist agenda.

who's writing confederate yankee these days? joe lieberman?

(tip o the kangaroo tail to tbogg for the heads up about this nefarious conspiracy!)

I always thought it was the brown acid that was responsible, till even the pretty colors went away. Now I suspect the Whigs and the earwigs are conspiring with the Rastafarians under the leadership of Manny Ramirez. Since he agreed to cut the dreads, nobody'll ever suspect him, except the Red Sox. And nobody in their right mind would listen to them.

There's another problem. WWW.SITEMETER.COM is down, so if you have a link to it on your site, IE won't display it.
