What?

I just got this email. Rest assured I requested a review. I guess that's what I get for not keeping up.


Hello, Your blog at: http://barbourbunch.blogspot.com/ has been identified as a potential spam blog. To correct this, please request a review by filling out the form at http://www.blogger.com/unlock-blog.g?lockedBlogID=751729176274698663 Your blog will be deleted in 20 days if it isn't reviewed, and your readers will see a warning page during this time. After we receive your request, we'll review your blog and unlock it within two business days. Once we have reviewed and determined your blog is not spam, the blog will be unlocked and the message in your Blogger dashboard will no longer be displayed. If this blog doesn't belong to you, you don't have to do anything, and any other blogs you may have won't be affected. We find spam by using an automated classifier. Automatic spam detection is inherently fuzzy, and occasionally a blog like yours is flagged incorrectly. We sincerely apologize for this error. By using this kind of system, however, we can dedicate more storage, bandwidth, and engineering resources to bloggers like you instead of to spammers. For more information, please see Blogger Help: http://help.blogger.com/bin/answer.py?answer=42577 Thank you for your understanding and for your help with our spam-fighting efforts. Sincerely, The Blogger Team P.S. Just one more reminder: Unless you request a review, your blog will be deleted in 20 days.

How on earth are you considered spam???

Michelle said...

Weird could you verify from within Blogger that it was from Blogger? I used to get things similar to that from Paypal and ebay except they weren't from Paypal or ebay but spam themselves.

I agree with Michelle--I would try to verify that it is legit!

Sometimes I think Google hates us all.

DO NOT CLICK ON THAT URL. I got a similar one, only not as detailed. They're just using your computer to backdoor spam.

Go to Blogger Help first and then go to those fake spam sights like Hoax Slayer. DO NOT CLICK ON ANYTHING until you've talked to Blogger Help.

Also, go into Blogger Settings and set your comment moderation to 3 or 4 days. That's so bots can't get it. Or do word verification.
