BlogSpot Country Domains Blocked By StumbleUpon

We've seen a few recent reports, in Blogger Help Forum: Get Help with an Issue, about problems getting StumbleUpon to accept Blogger blogs.
Every time I try to put a blog into StumbleUpon, it replies that it does not accept Blogger site submissions.
And the URL, when stated, will be a non "BlogSpot.com" country code alias.

StumbleUpon Support has provided an official response, shedding some light.

In StumbleUpon Help: Blogspot.com.[country] submissions - Unable to add, we see an Official Response.
We have, at this time, excluded content from the various blogspot.xxx country domains from being added to StumbleUpon.
If you're trying to add your blog to StumbleUpon, and you're seeing
We don't accept submissions from this site.
Just provide the "blogspot.com" URL alias for your non custom domain published blog, when submitting to StumbleUpon. That is where the Blogger traffic goes, any way. If your blog is published to a custom domain, you'll see no problem.

StumbleUpon is simply one more Internet service that does not support the Canonical tag, as used by Blogger in their BlogSpot country code aliased URLs.

Custom Domain Migration - Managing The Traffic

Your blog depends upon traffic for its success.

Anything that affects the traffic to your blog, such as any change in the URL, affects the success of your blog.

The effects of the change will vary from blog to blog, because of the different traffic to every different blog.Followers. People who find your blog because of recommendations by other people.Search engines. Robotic processes which methodically surf your blog, and provide dynamic indexing to people who search for information.Subscribers. People who read your content from their newsfeed reader, such as the dashboard Reading List.Viewers.

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.
