Hope Springs Eternal

Some confirmed spammers aren't giving up, willingly. Even after I deliver the (so it seems, to us) final verdict
Sorry, your blog will not be restored. It was recently confirmed as spam.
we get the reply
I am getting a message on my dashboard saying
If you are a real human being please enter the CAPTCHA, and we will take a look at your blog. Since you are a real human reading this blog, your blog is probably not spam.
So I have submitted my review and appeal, again.
Unfortunately, this is false hope.

Apparently, there is no dashboard code to accept the final verdict from the third strike review, such that the dashboard will cease displaying a blog that has been manually examined, by real humans - and for the last time, determined to contain spam.

This is yet another case of the left hand (the Blogger Support spam confirmation process) not letting the right hand (the Blogger dashboard display wizard) know what it's doing.

Regardless, the blog, once confirmed as spam, is gone. If it was spam yesterday, and it's spam today, it will be spam tomorrow. The Blogger spam confirmation team isn't going to reverse their opinion. Their review, once delivered, is final.

It's gone. Start over, if you wish. Alternately, find another way to occupy your time.

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:
