Generator Blog in Spam Trap

Gerard Vlemmings of the Generator Blog sent this in:

Four weeks ago, Google (Blogger) send me a message telling me my site The Generator Blog has been found to be a spamblog by one of their spambots. Which of course it isn’t.

They offered me the possibility to send a request for reviewing, which I did. They also told me there would be a grace period of a couple of days before I would be able to post again.

After a week, nothing had happened. Instead I got another message telling me my site was a spamblog. Again I requested a review.
This has happened several times up until now. I also send a couple of messages to Blogger Help. Again, nothing happened.

It is as if no one at Google (Blogger) reads my messages.
This has been going on for four weeks now and I haven’t been able to post anything to The Generator Blog.

In the meantime I am loosing my readers by the hundreds a day and I’m afraid that all the work from the past three years has been for nothing. The Generator Blog gets 2,500 vistors each day and has welcomed over 2,500,000 visitors during its existence.
