My Blog has been deleted AGAIN!!! NITECRUZR PLEASE HELP (Again) WardColeman 12/20/12 10:25 AM
My Blog http://jockspank.blogspot.com/ was first deleted in September 2009 because Bloggers Bots thought it was a Spam blog

Nitecruzr very kindly arranged for a review to confirm it was not a Spam blog, and it was finally reinstated on October 2 2009

However, now they have DONE IT AGAIN. To the same blog

Blogger has already confirmed it is NOT A SPAM blog and has reinstated it once before.

I have sent an automated request for a review but can you please try and speed it up for me, I have masses of things to post over Christmas.

Surely they can check back and see that it has already been reviewed.

Please help me get it back

Thanks for your help

Ward

The 2009 Thread was titled: Why doesn't Blogger check if a blog is actually a Spam blog before suspending it?

Spam Appeal Guidelines - December 2012

If your blog has been falsely classified as a spam (hacking, porn) host, we apologise.  Nobody gains, with genuine, non spam Blogger blogs being deleted or locked falsely.  Given the fact that automated spam detection is not yet a perfect science, Blogger Support is always willing to investigate any reports of false positive spam reviews, politely posted here in the forum.

That being said, before you request an appeal, it's worth describing a few examples of what Blogger regularly removes, as part of its zero tolerance policy to abusive / inappropriate content: Read the FAQ, for a list of examples.

[FAQ] What Blog Content Is Considered Abusive, By Google Spam Mitigation Policy?

If you are the owner of the blog(s) in question, just reply here, saying that you've read the Guidelines, and objectively tell us whether any of the examples provided might be relevant to your blog - and we'll forward your appeal to Blogger Support.

Please note that the Blogger Team may look at other blogs in your account, as part of their review. If you request an appeal, and Blogger discovers other abusive / inappropriate content during the investigation, you risk having all of your content permanently removed. Please consider this when requesting an appeal.

If you want to know why any of this is necessary, read here:

Hi Nitecruzr

Thanks for replying. However, I know all this, and have already requested a review yesterday.  you probably don't remember but we have been through this all before with the same blog in September 2009, when you gave me a lot of help.  The blog was reviewed then and found not to be in breach of blogger's terms.  

Surely I don't have to go through all this again, Can't you notify blogger that it was reviewed three years ago and ask them to reinstate it?

Meanwhile I had over 600 followers, is there any way I can contact them and let them know what is happening?

Thanks for your help

Regards Ward

Do you think there is any likelihood that there will be any unlock reviews during the Christmas week, or will I now have to wait until the new year?

After all they have disabled a blog which they have already reviewed and reinstated once before when they disabled it back in 2009.  So it is self evidently not a spam blog.

I have been with Blogger for five years now both I am the other poster pay an annual fee to Google for storage, in fact they only took the latest installment from my credit card last month.  I really deserve to be treated better than this.  

Re: My Blog has been deleted AGAIN!!! NITECRUZR PLEASE HELP (Again) nitecruzr 12/21/12 11:21 AM
If you requested a review yesterday, it's possible that would be all that's necessary.

If a "third strike" review is necessary, however, I'll escalate such request quite seriously next Monday.  Christmas week or no, I will do my best to convince the monkeys that they need to do at least one review batch, sometime next week.

BTW, we've all been through this harsh treatment.
Re: My Blog has been deleted AGAIN!!! NITECRUZR PLEASE HELP (Again) WardColeman 12/21/12 11:48 AM
Thank you very much Nitecruzr, I really do appreciate your help.

I remember how helpful you were the last time this happened, and I am very grateful.  I am sorry to hear you have experienced harsh treatment as well.

Ward,

God sends his rain, upon the just and the un just.  No less do the Blogger Engineers send their rain.

If anything, that hardens my resolve to keep the spam review process as clean and uncluttered as possible.
Re: My Blog has been deleted AGAIN!!! NITECRUZR PLEASE HELP (Again) WardColeman 12/21/12 11:59 AM
That is very encouraging to know!

Thank you very much

Merry Christmas

Hi

This is just to gently remind you that you said you would try and get Blogger to do at last one spam review this week, and hopefully include my blog.

Have a very Merry Christmas

Regards

Ward

Re: My Blog has been deleted AGAIN!!! NITECRUZR PLEASE HELP (Again) WardColeman 12/26/12 12:41 PM
Do you know whether Blogger will be doing any spam reviews this week? Will they be working at all this week?

As I said earlier in this thread, they already reviewed and reinstated the blog three years ago, and it has not changed since then, so it is not a spam blog.

Should I send another review request?

Thanks

Re: My Blog has been deleted AGAIN!!! NITECRUZR PLEASE HELP (Again) WardColeman 12/26/12 10:54 PM
It is now exactly seven days since I asked for my blog to be reviewed and restored following a false spam blog finding, do you think it is appropriate to send a further request?

Thanks

Re: My Blog has been deleted AGAIN!!! NITECRUZR PLEASE HELP (Again) nitecruzr 12/26/12 11:29 PM
Ward,

I am sure that one request is all that is necessary.
Re: My Blog has been deleted AGAIN!!! NITECRUZR PLEASE HELP (Again) WardColeman 12/26/12 11:49 PM
Okay, thanks

I will be patient :-) (or try to be)

I had to send a second request as, when I went to my blog list, it no longer confirmed that it had received my first request of December 20th, but had reverted to the original message saying that, if I didn't request a review with 20 days, it would delete the blog.

I am not prepared to take the risk of them deleting five years of work  

Re: My Blog has been deleted AGAIN!!! NITECRUZR PLEASE HELP (Again) Magister 12/28/12 6:29 PM
So you know, the same thing happened to me. The "restore" screen showed they had received my review request on the 20th, then suddenly last night or early this AM, it reverted back to the original message without a date, so I submitted my restore request again. I'm thinking that it may have timed out after seven days, though I guess it could also be indicative of something else.
Re: My Blog has been deleted AGAIN!!! NITECRUZR PLEASE HELP (Again) WardColeman 12/28/12 11:15 PM
Sorry to hear you are having the same problem.  It is impossible to know what is the right thing to do, they will not communicate with you, you have to read the signs, as if Blogger is some all powerful Polynesian God!

I guess as it is now the weekend will have to wait until the New Year before we find out what is happening.

I wonder if they understand how distressing this is.

Hi al  

Sorry to hear that Al, it seems the Blogger robots have gone into hyper-drive!

You will need to start your own thread by posting a question (see the red tab at the top of the page) then one of the moderators can help you.

Re: My Blog has been deleted AGAIN!!! NITECRUZR PLEASE HELP (Again) nitecruzr 12/29/12 1:58 AM
Ward,

I'm going to keep pinging Blogger Support, and encouraging them to get to work.  This is not a simple task.  While I do this, I need that you help me to help you - and the other blog owners.

Please, do not reply to the hijackers.  If possible, delete your replies to them.

[FAQ] Why Can't I Get Help, By Posting At The End Of A Similar Question?

[FAQ] How Do I Delete And Edit My Forum Posts?

This discussion is for your blog, only.  Having other people post here - and having you encourage them - only slows things down, for you, for other blog owners, and for me.
Re: My Blog has been deleted AGAIN!!! NITECRUZR PLEASE HELP (Again) WardColeman 12/29/12 3:17 AM
Thanks Nitecruzr

I understand, and will do as you say.

I noticed that you have forwarded some people's concerns about disabled blogs to Blogger, but you haven't done that with mine yet.  I assume there must be a reason for this?

Thanks

Ward

Re: My Blog has been deleted AGAIN!!! NITECRUZR PLEASE HELP (Again) WardColeman 12/29/12 7:06 AM
I attach a screenshot I took of the blog stats using Google Analytics at the beginning of this month (just 18 days before the Blogger robots struck) From it you can see that 53% of the visitors were returning visitors, and that visitors spent on average 4.39 minutes there.

If you could forward this to Blogger, they can see that it is a popular and active blog which wasn't spamming anyone  

Re: My Blog has been deleted AGAIN!!! NITECRUZR PLEASE HELP (Again) nitecruzr 12/29/12 7:10 AM
Ward,

Actually, I did forward your concerns.  I have just been so caught up in forwarding your concerns that I forgot to ping you back.
Re: My Blog has been deleted AGAIN!!! NITECRUZR PLEASE HELP (Again) nitecruzr 12/29/12 7:12 AM
Ward,

Popularity is not part of the spam review.  Please, let's not start that rumour again.

Only content is relevant to the review process.  We don't want to encourage any more Coyotes.

Again, please delete your replies to the hijackers.

what the heck. from september to october? is blogger really that slow on fixing those issues? oh cmon
Re: My Blog has been deleted AGAIN!!! NITECRUZR PLEASE HELP (Again) WardColeman 12/29/12 7:44 AM
Thanks Nitecruzr

I should have realized you would have that in hand, I am very grateful for your help.

Ignore the stats, I wasn't attempting to demonstrate popularity, I was just hoping it would be evidence to back up my situation

Ward

Re: My Blog has been deleted AGAIN!!! NITECRUZR PLEASE HELP (Again) nitecruzr 12/29/12 8:04 AM
Thanks, Ward.

The plain fact is that Blogger stopped using blog popularity, in evaluating spam reviews, long ago.  Another detail which was hijacked by the spammers.  That happened long before the Daily Coyote incident.

Re: My Blog has been deleted AGAIN!!! NITECRUZR PLEASE HELP (Again) WardColeman 12/29/12 8:13 AM
The Daily Coyote situation must have caused you a lot of difficulty!  Don't worry I have no plans to do anything like that :-)

Re: My Blog has been deleted AGAIN!!! NITECRUZR PLEASE HELP (Again) WardColeman 1/1/13 10:14 PM
I have just been to my blog list and I see that the blog has been restored.

Thanks for your help with this Nitecruzr, I am very grateful indeed

Now what do I do to prevent this from ever happening again?!!

Re: My Blog has been deleted AGAIN!!! NITECRUZR PLEASE HELP (Again) nitecruzr 1/1/13 11:21 PM
Ward,

You can reduce risk by publishing more interesting and relevant content.  You cannot prevent risk however.

Re: My Blog has been deleted AGAIN!!! NITECRUZR PLEASE HELP (Again) WardColeman 1/2/13 2:31 PM
Thanks Nitecruzr

However, I don't do any of those things all my postings are relevant and, they seem interesting to visitors.  It is certainly not an empty blog, I and the other poster both pay Google a fee for excess storage.

There are lots of hyperlinks both in the postings and in the side navigation, I wondered if that might cause it.  It is all there to help visitors.

One would think Blogger could flag a blog which has been reviewed and reinstated, so the robots would bypass it in future.  

Re: My Blog has been deleted AGAIN!!! NITECRUZR PLEASE HELP (Again) nitecruzr 1/2/13 3:18 PM
Ward,

A lot of spammers would love it, if Blogger were to flag blogs that were reviewed and reinstated, so the robots would bypass it in future.

http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2011/11/blogs-cannot-be-whitelisted-against.html

As long as you publish a Blogger blog, your Blogger blog is vulnerable.
