I noticed that one of my blog was blocked for new posts because it was detected as SPAM blog

>>>Automated spam detection is inherently fuzzy, and we sincerely apologize for this false positive.

Whatsoever, its a nice way to stop spam blogs, I remember seeing many such spam blogs on blogger.

2 reasons of unlinking the URL

a) Image size is big, its a screenshot of the error
b) Philipp's filter to my domain is back in action ;)

Rohit, we're not blocking your domain intentionally. It's unfortunately just a side effect from blocking a certain type of spam that made a comeback the other day.

Hopefully if Philipp implements this idea – blogoscoped.com/forum/103103.h ... – you might not get that problem again! :-)

(Since the image is large anyway, I'll leave it unlinked for now.)

Thanks Tony
I agree to the blocking thing and I appreciate the efforts you guys take to keep this forum clean

My first reason for unlinking was the size only.

Once I import my old blog posts to blogger, and blogger reported spam. To many posts a day will be consider to be spams I think.

One of my old blog entry had a few links to my friends blogs.
I think they suspected it for outgoing links as they call it "link spamming".

BTW they have not unlocked it till yet
It says:
"We received your unlock request on July 19, 2007. On behalf of the robots, we apologize for locking your non-spam blog. Please be patient while we take a look at your blog and verify that it is not spam."

How many days???

The story continues, it shows me an option to (re)request unblocking which i did & now I see the status as

> We received your unlock request on July 28, 2007. On behalf of the robots, we apologize for locking your non-spam blog. Please be patient while we take a look at your blog and verify that it is not spam.

This thread is locked as it's old... but you can create a new thread in the forum.
