Have you notived the nifty littler "Flag?" button on the top right of your blog ? I wonder if Blogger has started working with the Dept of Homeland Security under the Patriot Act ?

No, actually, I hadn't. Interesting. I wonder if they offer the flagee any insight into how, why, or which flaggers have caused them to be flagged.

Seen harry's post on the issue ? I agree with him ... I think it is quite stupid of Google/Blogger to do this, given what I understand of the general dynamics of blogging.

Jon, Harry is probably right. I want Google to not be the cliche that is always present when Big Business and lawyers get together. So I was thinking they were more worried about stuff like this than about instances of colorful expression, porn, etc.

The "this" in my previous comment did not refer to the comments under the post it points to (just so we're clear...). It was supposed to be pointing at instances of robotic blogs that my original post had linked to. I see that those roboblogs no longer exist, suggesting that there may be a policy of eradicating such.

I wonder if the roboblogs have ceased to exist, or just evolved ? This article is pretty recent .. and it may not be completely OT, as i confess that I am not knowledgeable at all about roboblogs.
