Suspected in blog spamming


My Blogger account wont let me post. After logging in I found the following message:

 

#########################

WARNING
This blog has been locked by Blogger's spam-prevention robots. You will not be able to publish your posts, but you will be able to save them as drafts.

Blogger's spam-prevention robots have detected that your blog has characteristics of a spam blog. Since you're an actual person reading this, your blog is probably not a spam blog.
Automated spam detection is inherently fuzzy, and we sincerely apologize for this false positive.

We received your unlock request on August 7, 2007. On behalf of the robots, we apologize for locking your non-spam blog. Please be patient while we take a look at your blog and verify that it is not spam.

##########################

 

Say what??? On behalf of the robots??? The only thing in this blog is code oriented, nothing with spam keywords and the amount of posts is certainly not in a volume of a spam , strange.

Anyway, my unlock request was sent half day ago and still I *cant* publish anything? So how can you read this? Well, it turns out that publishing is still possible using Windows Live writer. Windows live writer, in some way, is bypassing the mechanism used by Blogger.

 

So if you are one of the Blogger team, CLOSE THIS HOLE and let me post!
