This one seems to have started about 15:00 PST today. So far, maybe a dozen threads in Something Is Broken, most threads with multiple posters, much cross-posting.

Several bloggers suggesting the problem is template related. Several error messages noted in various foreign languages.

My blog is showing as violated terms of service but I don't know why and I need to get my blog back to public view, so what do I need to do?

Look on your dashboard, do you see a link for "Request Review" or similar? If not, you'll have to write to Blogger using the Contact Form.

Thanks Chuck
I would have never figured that out...they keep their contact pretty well hidden

I filled it out and hopefully thay will contact me because this is very frustrating!

I don't even have porn up on my site...just shameless self-promotion of my erotica cause I'm an author and somebody has to push my stories and it might as well be me...

Anyway THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Good luck, Roxy. I agree, it's pretty confusing. Of course, the hacking / porn / spam problem isn't too great either.

I just wish that Blogger could figure out the right way to eliminate the hacking / porn / spam problem itself.

I am getting this error message now, a full 11 months after you wrote this post and cannot for the life of me find a solution! As for trying to contact someone at Blogger is nigh on impossible and the Help Group has plenty of help requests but seemingly little in the way of answers! If anyone can help resolve this issue (Index out of Range: -27) I would be eternally grateful!

What Is "" vs. ""?

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 "" - am I supposed to use "", 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.
