Blogger Stats And The Interstitial Warning

Recently, we're seeing quite a few owners of "adult content" and private blogs reporting problems with their Stats displays.
Blogger Stats are no longer counting!
and
On my Stats display, the pageview counts have not changed since this morning!!
and
Stats aren't loading, for my blog!
These reports are coming from owners of various blogs which have an Interstitial Warning display in front of their blogs - either because the blog is subject to an "Adult Content" warning, or because the blog is published privately. The Interstitial Warning has been known for other instances of interference with visitor information.

We have a rollup discussion in Blogger Help Forum: Something Is Broken, where this problem is being explored, in detail. From what we can tell, this problem started sometime late 3/26 Pacific time.

Hi there, do you know if Google is doing anything to resolve the problem? I'm experiencing it too and can't seem to find a way to contact them for advice!

Aphrodite,

Blogger Support is aware of the problem between Stats and the Interstitial Warning that's being used to keep "adult" content out of blatantly plain sight - in spite of some of the unobjective opinions being expressed by some uninformed blog owners. And yes, they are actively working on the problem. You do have to be aware though that not all problems can be solved, immediately.

so, you preach patience, Chuck? :)

I preach patience, yes, Vincent. I know though that we are all human - and none of us are infinite in patience.

That's fine....it's annoying to not see which posts are pulling the numbers, but it would be MORE annoying not to see numbers at all!
