The Daily Coyote

Apparently the blog "The Daily Coyote" was locked as a spam blog, pending investigation. The owner then convinced its readers to conduct a DOS attack against Google Blogger Help, until it was restored to operational status, in the impression that such action would hasten Bloggers reaction.

It was restored 7th of April 2008, and the owner admitted the same, in a post on the blog. Obviously unlocked.

Yet the useless posts continue in Blogger Help Group. This prevents other people, needing help, from being helped promptly.

To the owners of the blog:
You need to again email your readers, and instruct them to knock it off. You aren't bothering Blogger, but you are interfering with other bloggers being helped.


Blogger has a very real problem with spam blogs. If your blog is blocked, or if it's removed, it's not done so trivially, nor are you the only one being so oppressed.

Right now, Daily Coyote whinings are approaching classification as a Denial Of Service Attack.

Go away.

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.

Free Domain Registration By "UNONIC" Is Fraudulent

Blogger blog owners, like everybody else, like to save money.

Some blog owners prefer to save money when registering a custom domain, for their blogs. We've seen several free domain registration services, providing what is claimed to be a two level Top Level Domain "co.xx" (where "xx" == various country codes).

The latest in this ongoing story appears to be "net.tf" - and 13 other "top level domains".There is also an additional free service offering third-level .tf domains, under the name United Names Organisation. They occupy 14 second-level domains, including .eu.tf, .us.tf, .net.tf, and .edu.tf. They are run by the same company as smartdots.com, and are given away as URL redirections.
