After noticing I suddenly was required to type a complex code everytime I wanted to post, I found this message on my blogger account:
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.My first thought, of course, was "Those Damn Robots Have It Out For Me!" After calming down though, my next thought was, "Robots Are Stupid." Because, after all, it's pretty obvious this isn't a spam blog. I have not attempted to sell one pill of Viagra, nor have I told anyone they need to get their penis enlarged. So I'm not quite sure what this robot dude is basing his analysis on. This is like the Terminator attacking a tree because he believes it's John Connor. Aren't robots supposed to be super-intelligent?
Before we can turn off mandatory word verification on your posts we'll need to have a human review your blog and verify that it is not a spam blog.
So if the "human reviewer" is reading this right now, I've got a message for him. Your robots suck. You should be very, very ashamed of them. Clearly, we're not talking R2-D2 here.
Now on to some interesting links. None of them links to pyramid schemes.
