Orwellian or what?

So what? While Blogdom is dying a slow, painful death due to Farcebook, primarily, Blogger itself kills one of its most popular blogs, by MJ of Infomaniac fame and Vancouver, Canada?
Pretty soon, Blogger will bumble all across the land and silently, with a deft hand, decide for us all who we should visit and who we shouldn't -- even though MJ's blog was labelled and flagged with warnings.
These warnings let everyone know they MIGHT be offended by the content, and warned the faint of heart or those who might be offended to take a hike if they so wanted.
They came by the scores anyway. But Blogger, I guess, figured it had to be the moral judge for ALL of us. and obliterated that blog.
Then I ask you to obliterate this blog, too, if you want. Or you don't like the pleebs saying something you disagree with? You will just rush my own disappearance from the blog world.
Or maybe that's what you are hoping happens?


  1. i'm with xl on this one, sugar!


    FREE MJ!

    and i'm not giving up without a fight! bring it, blogger because i am so ready to kick some ass! xoxoxo

  2. Savannnah: Thanks, Girl!

  3. Anonymous4:01 p.m.

    Its really annoying. wordpress is an option.

  4. Savannah: thanx girl
    Mago: keep up the pressure on these idiots!

  5. WW, this is a travesty! And you're right, Blogger is only hastening it's death and making itself obsolete by deleting Infomaniac, where exchanging ideas and sharing a good laugh kept the spirit of the blogging community alive.

    I've put up a request at Blogger Forum to restore Infomaniac. So have others, and we've all ready got a response from Blogger, saying that only MJ can report this problem. But if MJ can't access her blocked Gmail or Blogger account, how can MJ report the problem?

    I figure that if more of us keep reporting Infomaniac's disappearance on Blogger Forum and keep asking them to restore Infomaniac, Blogger will have to take notice and respond quicker. They've all ready replied back, so we just have to keep the pressure up and build up momentum. I really believe that as a community, we can move mountains!

  6. Chris, you're a peach for posting this.

    I've been pleasantly surprised by this "Free MJ!" campaign that's going on amongst my blogging friends.

    An update to let you know that earlier today I was getting a “server error” message when I tried to contact Google to report the problem. I’ve just now managed to get the message through. If I get a response from Google, I’ll let you know.

  7. Good work Winky! Get over to Eroswings and find his link. If enough of us bitch maybe they will apologise...and you're right, it is Orwellian.

  8. I've dared them to shut me up about this.

    Let's hope that for the 5 people in the world who still blg rather than Farcebook, it does something.

  9. Even blogless, I won't Facebook.


If you choose to use anonymous to comment, it is only fair that I reserve the right to obliterate your comment from my blog.
