Unexplained blog layout problems resolved

Restored original format from my backup files, noon Feb 21/11. Blog layout template was corrupted on Google's host server. I asked them to investigate.

  1. First it was the House of Infamy and now.....

  2. It is starting to look like the government is trying very hard to stifle any comments on their (government) dismally poor record whilst in office.

    Having seen the full 36 page 2001 Election Manifesto - all the details that Campbell bragged about - and now look at what he has left as a legacy for future generations, it is no wonder they might try and prevent more criticism and embarrassment for our beloved "pyschopathic narcissist " - Gordon "the liar" Campbell.

    Keep up the good work Norm.

  3. Google has some explaining to do here and at Hosue of Infamy.

  4. Just thought I'd pass along word that House of Infamy has been restored.

    I would caution not to read too much in to this. I suspect that Blogger's complaint/abuse system is automated. Someone probably made a complaint out of malice about HoI in a way that triggered the response.

    Once an actual human being looked over it and determined that HoI was not in violation of the Terms of Service (as it clearly wasn't), the blog was restored.

  5. Glad to see your site is up and running again, Mr. Farrell. Please keep up the good work.

  6. I think Spartikus is correct. I still remain a fan of Google. Like early Microsoft, they are innovative in seeking quality and unique offerings and enable many, obviously including me, to use significant resources at very low cost. For example, I bought 20GB of extra online storage for $5 and that is on top of a large amount at no charge.

    There was very unusual traffic at Northern Insights overnight that apparently originated from BC IP addresses. Were these insomniacs reading or something else? I don't know. I do however keep backup copies of everything.

  7. The Rail for the Valley web site has had many hack attempts recently. I would surmise that all blogs are susceptible to this kind of abuse.
