We're back!
By Tom Smith

We were locked out of our blog all weekend by the evil spam prevention robots at Blogger. The RC may be a lot of things, but being identified as a spam blog, even if it was by a robot, was pretty insulting. What on earth did we do to get inside of that algorithm? I have a theory. Shortly before we were locked out, I linked both to a post on VC and to another post on VC, which the first post itself linked to. This might have made the robot think we were engaged in some sort of crawly behavior. But that's just a guess.

In any event, Blogger's stock with me is at an all time low. I really want the RC to make the switch to Typepad. Be alert for news on this score.
