Recent Problem With The Spam Classification Process #2

Earlier this month, we watched in horror, as thousands of Blogger blogs were classified, en masse, as possible spam hosts.
My blog has been missing for more then 2 weeks now. I was hoping that it would be restored automatically after you had some issues with "disabled blogs" a couple of weeks ago. However, the things are unchanged.

Blogger later declared the issue officially closed.
This specific issue affected users whose accounts were temporarily suspended due to suspicious login or hijackings. Accounts in this state can be easily restored via SMS or other verification methods, but after verification, a bug on our end prevented the blog from being restored along with the account.

We've corrected the underlying issue though, and have made sure that all blogs who were taken down as a result of suspicious account activity are now back online. If your blog is still inaccessible, then you were not experiencing this specific issue and you should start a new thread to follow-up.

The bottom line here is that anybody seeing the (by now) well known symptom
The blog you were looking for was not found. If you are the owner of this blog, please sign in.
will need to start a new discussion in Blogger Help Forum: Something Is Broken, and prepare to endure the hated 4 step spam review process.

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.
