My Blog is NOT Spam !!

Bloggers is fighting against Spam Blogs and nice people like me caught in the cross-fire.

Now for some reason I have to do word verification on my posting form. Apparently my blog is falsely identified as a spam blog by Bloggers automated spam fighter shit. One of the frustrations of dealing with the word verification aka captcha, is Bloggers Captcha got annoying bug. You have to verify within few seconds (10-20 sec) the characters appear or else it will be invalid and you have to redo it again. Definitely not enuff time given to post rite ??

Blogger Definition to Potential Spam

In this case, word verification is applied to certain potential spam blogs by an automated system. Because this is automated there will necessarily be some false positives, though we're continually working on improving our algorithms to avoid these. If your blog is one of the false positives, we apologize. Having the word verification on your posting form does not prevent you from publishing and does not mean that your blog will be deleted or otherwise punished if it is not actually in violation of our policies.

Apparently, my active posting triggers the mechanism.

Reported, hence their quick response,


Your blog has been reviewed, verified, and cleared for regular use so that
it will no longer appear as potential spam. If you sign out of Blogger and
sign back in again, you should be able to post as normal. Thanks for your
patience, and we apologize for any inconvenience this has caused.
