A New Game! Let's Go Porn\\\\Next Blog Surfing!!

Several months ago, I started a series of posts which I entitled "Adult FriendFinder", or "AFF". Adult FriendFinder has been long known for providing Internet advertisements using pictures of "local" women, with many of their pictures frequently described as pornography.

An unidentified criminal organisation is currently producing a large number of blogs, which are being hosted by BlogSpot, and which use Adult FriendFinder ads as their signature. These blogs are maintained in great volume, so when you use the "Next Blog" link in the Navbar for any amount of time, you will likely surf to one or more.

The volume of these spam blogs, or splogs, in BlogSpot, is one of the reasons why I, and a few other bloggers, now advise those with blogs read by sensitive people, to remove the Navbar from your blog. I make this advice, ever mindful of Blogger repeated advice that the Navbar should not be tampered with.

And this is why I currently refer to using the "Next Blog" link in the Navbar, as "Porn\\\\Next Blog" surfing.

Adult FriendFinder was recently censured by the FTC, and promised to cease producing pornographic advertising easily visible. They claim to have hidden any undesirable pictures behind a warning.

The latter claim is, to put it mildly, hot air. To truly understand what I'm talking about, you will have to see for yourself. But, only look after you have properly prepared your browser. Please, do not surf these splogs without protection.
Please, if you are disturbed by the nature of what you see, do not complain to me. I am only advising you to look, so you may understand why your blog gets so little random traffic, or why your page rank has dropped recently. Please, complain to Blogger, and do so frequently.

Like any game, there are rules. You are free to develop your own, however (and leave me comments here discussing your rules), if you wish. I explain the rules, and show a sample game, in my next post.

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.

Help! I Can't See My Blog!

I just posted to my blog, so I know that it's there. I can tell others are looking at it. But I can't see it.

Well, the good news is you don't have a blog hijack or other calamity. Your blog is not gone.

Apparently, some ISPs are blocking *.blogspot.com, or maybe have network configuration or infrastructure problems. You can access Blogger.com or you can access Blogspot.com, but you can't access nitecruzr.blogspot.com, or bloggerstatusforreal.blogspot.com.

You can't access them directly, that is. If you can access any free, anonymous proxy servers, though, you may be able to access your blog.

Note: You can use PKBlogs with the URL pre packaged. Here is the address of this post (with gratuitous line breaks to prevent the old post sidebar alignment problem):
http://www.pkblogs.com/bloggerstatusforreal.blogspot.com/

And an additional URL, to provide to those suffering from this problem, would be the WordPress version of this post:
