Imagine my surprise when I found out that my Daily Runner blog is down. Apparently Google thinks this is a SPAM blog, or rather one of their automated tools does. I reported it as a real blog, and hopefully it will come back. If not, I'm seriously ticked about this. 48 days of blogging, noting my runs, tracking data and it's gone.


Here's what I got from my request:
Your blog is disabled

Blogger's spam-prevention robots have detected that your blog has characteristics of a spam blog. (What's a spam blog?) Since you're an actual person reading this, your blog is probably not a spam blog. Automated spam detection is inherently fuzzy, and we sincerely apologize for this false positive.

We received your unlock request on October 28, 2008. 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.
