Blogger Blogs Showing "Possible Blogger Terms of Service Violations" Notice

Last week, we saw a fairly large number of reports from blog owners, reporting that their blogs had been apparently classified as spam hosts - but with a new symptom.

Possible Blogger Terms of Service Violations

This blog is currently under review due to possible Blogger Terms of Service violations.

If you're a regular reader of this blog and are confident that the content is appropriate, feel free to click "Proceed" to proceed to the blog. We apologize for the inconvenience.

If you're an author of this blog, please follow the instructions on your dashboard for removing this warning page.

When the problem was forwarded to Blogger Support, they identified a recent change in the spam classifier as a cause - and suggested that they could review and reverse all such false classifications, en masse.

Later that same day, Blogger Support declared that the problem was resolved.

We've been seeing intermittent reports of this problem, recurring, since the latter declaration. We're handling them on an individual basis, starting from reports in Blogger Help: Something Is Broken.

If your blog shows this symptom, please start a new topic in Something Is Broken. - and indicate the "Possible Blogger Terms of Service Violations" in the Question title / Subject. We'll do our best to expedite resolution of your problem. Please be accurate, brief, and complete - and as always, state the URL of the blog.

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.
