Hope Springs Eternal

Some confirmed spammers aren't giving up, willingly. Even after I deliver the (so it seems, to us) final verdict
Sorry, your blog will not be restored. It was recently confirmed as spam.
we get the reply
I am getting a message on my dashboard saying
If you are a real human being please enter the CAPTCHA, and we will take a look at your blog. Since you are a real human reading this blog, your blog is probably not spam.
So I have submitted my review and appeal, again.
Unfortunately, this is false hope.

Apparently, there is no dashboard code to accept the final verdict from the third strike review, such that the dashboard will cease displaying a blog that has been manually examined, by real humans - and for the last time, determined to contain spam.

This is yet another case of the left hand (the Blogger Support spam confirmation process) not letting the right hand (the Blogger dashboard display wizard) know what it's doing.

Regardless, the blog, once confirmed as spam, is gone. If it was spam yesterday, and it's spam today, it will be spam tomorrow. The Blogger spam confirmation team isn't going to reverse their opinion. Their review, once delivered, is final.

It's gone. Start over, if you wish. Alternately, find another way to occupy your time.
