Why The Hijackings?

This is frustrating as hell. I've been suspecting this situation since 5/2, when Geeta reported Temporarily Out of Service. Being as I'm not an employee of Blogger, just another Blogger like everybody else, I have to sit on the sidelines with everybody, and watch the fun (NOT).

I can only remind each person with a hijack situation, to Report The Problem To Blogger Support. And anybody who has a clue about this situation, if it differs from what I am writing here, Please! let us know.

But I suffer, as does everybody else, while I wait for my turn at being hijacked. And wonder WTF I'm doing to protect myself (if I am), and why I haven't been hijacked.

Why (how) are all of these blogs getting hijacked?

The Possibilities

One of the recent victims of the hijackings has a blog where discussions about these possibilities are in progress. Your feedback, either here, or there, will be appreciated.

The Bottom Line
Somehow we have to help Blogger Support realise that there is a problem, and then help them see a pattern, so they can identify the problem. Whether the problem is with us or them, WE are the ones who suffer. To them, it's an 8 x 5 job. We spend hella more time worrying. Or suffering. And I'm not really sure which is worse. Being hijacked. Or waiting to be hijacked.

One of the problems is that, when there is a problem, nobody wants to diagnose the problem. They just want it fixed. Now. So the bad guys hijack our lives, with impunity.

WTF is this when a bad guy can abuse us, over and over, and the only solution is to move to a Wordpress blog?

What Is "ghs.google.com" vs. "ghs.googlehosted.com"?

With Google Domains registered custom domains becoming more normal, we are seeing one odd attention to detail, expressed as confusion in Blogger Help Forum: Learn More About Blogger.My website uses "ghs.google.com" - am I supposed to use "ghs.googlehosted.com", instead?It's good to be attentive to detail, particularly with custom domain publishing. This is one detail that may not require immediate attention, however.
