Problems With Spam Classification - January 2011

In early December, 2010, a number of blog owners found themselves with deleted or locked blogs, and mysterious circumstances which appeared to involve bogus spam classification. This week, we are seeing similar, though not identical, reports in Blogger Help Forum: Something Is Broken.

We now have a rollup discussion, for reporting the problem, in Blogger Help Forum: Something Is Broken.

Legitimate reports of this problem need to be carefully separated from other known scenarios.
  1. Blog(s) that are (righteously, or spuriously) deleted or locked - and can be reviewed, using the 4 step process.
  2. Blog owners who have (for one reason or another) logged in to Blogger with the wrong account, and who do not see their expected blogs in the dashboard.
  3. Blog owners who have deleted the Blogger account, or individual blogs, for one reason or another.
These scenarios still need to be diagnosed and treated, individually.

Do we have any idea how long it may take for this problem to be fixed?
Hi Nitecruzr! Your blog is so helpful - I've found many solutions on here. And whenever I browse the help forums, you're there too!

I was wondering how you got a transparent background for your blog body?
Also, I've recently switched to a custom domain, and followed your instructions to change my CNAME and everything. Using a www in front of my blog works now, but my naked domain doesn't redirect my blog, unless I check the option that says "redirect example.com to www.example.com". Is there anything that I should be doing?

My blog is at www.bookcouture.com.

Thank you so much for taking your valuable time to look at my question. You're amazing at IT, and I literally worship your blog.
(I'll be refreshing this page in hopes for your answer.)

Stats Components Are Significant, In Their Own Context

One popular Stats related accessory, which displays pageview information to the public, is the "Popular Posts" gadget.

Popular Posts identifies from 1 to 10 of the most popular posts in the blog, by comparing Stats pageview counts. Optional parts of the display of each post are a snippet of text, and an ever popular thumbnail photo.

Like many Stats features, blog owners have found imaginative uses for "Popular Posts" - and overlook the limitations of the gadget. Both the dynamic nature of Stats, and the timing of the various pageview count recalculations, create confusion, when Popular Posts is examined.
