Geram...

Posting from my desktop using Windows Live Writer, since my blog was mistakenly locked by the Blogger Spam Prevention Robot. I can still logon into my blogger account and post comments and save my posts as drafts but won't be able to publish them till my blog is unlocked.

What the heck? Vehicles kena locked I know lah, but blogs also can kena locked wan ah? I'm not the only one. There are several unlucky ones out there who face the same fate. Summore, which features here are suggestive of a spam blog? I'm the one who kena spam uncountable times by those annoying spammers instead. Really GERAM 9-9. Ti(p)u. Summore dunno how long will they take to rectify the problem and to unlock my blog :(

Last but not least, before leaving this space, I hope you can spare few seconds of your precious time to answer 4 simple questions (gender, age group, occupation & whether u have a blog) in the advertlet polls located on the top of the sidebar. I still need 40 more participants . Click on the Refresh Button as shown in the picture above to take the poll. Thanks for participating.

Why kena liddat wan? Hmmm... apa is Live Writer? Nvm, too susah for me to understand...

Chen said...

angel,
When I logged into my blogger account yesterday night, I saw the following notice "This blog has been locked by Blogger's spam-prevention robots. You will not be able to publish your posts, but you will be able to save them as drafts. Save your post as a draft or click here for more about what's going on and how to get your blog unlocked."

This is the further info I got after clicking at the suggested link & the unlock request "Blogger's spam-prevention robots have detected that your blog has characteristics of a spam blog. Since you're an actual person reading this, your blog is probably not a spam blog. Automated spam detection is inherently fuzzy, and we sincerely apologize for this false positive. We received your unlock request on June 2, 2007. On behalf of the robots, we apologize for locking your non-spam blog. Please be patient while we take a look at your blog and verify that it is not spam."

Aiyh... really very sui.. :(
Windows Live Writer is a programme whereby u can update blogs straight from the desktop. U can get further info here (if u are interested lah) :P

lynnx01 said...

Live Writer? What's that? My friend's blog also kenak locked. I thought why she hasn't been updating.

lynnx01 said...

False positive.. sounds like a term from com med. That means this detector could be highly sensitive but definitely not specific enough!

Chen said...

day dreamer,
the robot cincai detect wan kua?
There are quite a number of people who kena for no reason too, from what I read in the google-blogger forum.

i will definitely not adopt sotsotdoctor.com. I'm not siao yet.. LOL

wah.. longkang laksa again? I haven't eat that for months too!!
*slurp*

Thanks for doing the poll :)

rinnah,
Windows Live Writer is a useful program to update blog from desktop.

Wah.. there's no poll here to choose domain name here lah. The only poll is the advertlet poll up there, which i'm still waiting for more participants :D

eve,
how to kautim? The key is with Blogspot taukeh woh.. Still not okie yet. Goodness know how long will they take to unlock the blog. Sudah 3 days liao :(

Chen said...

I just put it on few days back. That's why u didn't see it in the past :D

Thanks for taking the poll :)

ECL,

Dunno how the Spam Robot do their job, Cincai lock wan :(
Summore 3 days have passed already, and no action being taken yet to unlock, haiyhhhhhhh....

Thanks anyway for attempting to fill in the poll

Chen said...

day dreamer,
They didn't say u are only allowed to answer once only woh.. Hhahaha...

lynnx,
Click here to have a look regarding what is Windows Live Writer. It's a desktop application to write post.

Has your friend's blog being unlocked? I totally have no idea how long will they take to unlock the "affected" blogs :(

The detector is not highly sensitive at all. So many innocent blogger's blogs are locked, from what I gathered when I browse through the topics in Blogger Help Group

Kenny Ng said...
