Hillary bloggers shut down? Obama behind it?

Update: Late word last night that Blogger relented upon appeal and agreed to turn them back on. Something about "we thought there was a spam problem" ... of course that's the trick the Obama supporters used. They complain to blogger about spamming and get them to "investigate" the blogs they don't like.

We had the same thing happen in NW Indiana, when a mayor didn't like some things being said about him on a message board, so he had staff go on and submit "offensive" on all the posts, which the paper did then remove.

The author believes that his site and others were shut down because they are running an anti-Barack campaign. If this is the case, this is outright censorship by Google. Hard to believe but the coincidence is as well.

This is a message from the Blogger team.
Your blog, at, has been identified as a potential spam blog. . .
You will not be able to publish posts to your blog until we review your site and confirm that it is not a spam blog. . .

I thought this was a fluke and that I was alone, until I went to the Hillary Clinton Forum and saw Nobama’s post “Blogger just shut down my NObama Blog!!

Turns out that a number of us were “blocked”. The common thread, our membership in the Just Say No Deal Coalition — a coalition of millions with one thing in common: NObama. Then, Diane Mantouvalos, one of the founders of the coalition, advised the next day that her personal computer had been hacked.

Uppity Woman has a running list of blogs affected as well. In an abundance of caution, she’s set up an alternate site to be used if and when her blogger site is blocked completely (I was shocked to learn that since June 3, she’s had to use word verification to create new posts.)
