Blog*Spot DNS Related Outage In Indonesia

Various blogger customers in or near Indonesia are reporting inability to access Blogger blogs. Preliminary analysis appears that the problem is seen only with Blog*Spot blog addresses - custom domain URLs appear to be accessed with no problem, with the corresponding BlogSpot URL being inaccessible.

We have a Problem Rollup question in Blogger Help Forum, where the epidemiology of the problem is being explored.

If you are experiencing this problem, please state your country and city, and name of ISP.

Next, please help verify nature of your outage. Here are 5 replicas of the same article. Please click on each link, one after the other, and observe which links provide content to read. Please be specific - which ones can you, and which can't you, read?

Really thanks for your information, I'm a blogger from indonesia and your information is very helpful. Personally, I usually open my blog account via blogger, the reason is because I have to re-log in for my adsense account if i use blog*spot, but with blogger, goggle will only shown a click-able words: "take me to my account" instead. but so far, I don't know the difference between blogger and blog*spot.

Embedded Comments And Main Page View

The option to display comments, embedded below the post, was made a blog option relatively recently. This was a long requested feature - and many bloggers added it to their blogs, as soon as the option was presented to us. Some blog owners like this feature so much, that they request it to be visible when the blog is opened, in main page view.

With Following, Anonymous Followers Can't Be Blocked

As people become used to Blogger Following as just another tool to connect people, they start to think about the implications . And we see questions like How do I block someone who's been following my blog secretly? I couldn't see her in my Followers list (hence I couldn't use the "Block this user" link), but I have looked at her profile and could see that she's Following my blog. Following, when you look at the bottom line, is no more than a feed subscription and an icon (possibly) displayed on your blog, and linking back to the profile of the Follower in question. If someone Follows your blog anonymously, all that they get is a subscription to the blog feed. If you publish a feed from your blog, and if the feed is open to anybody (which, right now, is the case ), then it's open to everybody. If someone wants to use Following to subscribe to the feed, you can't stop this. You can't block it before, or after, the fact. You can't Block w
