I am a machine, apparently

I spend a lot of time earnestly searching for material to blog about. For hours, I hunch myself over my PC, lovingly crafting my prose, fine-polishing my wordsmithing, checking references, putting in links and photos, answering comments and checking my Statcounter.

And what do I get?

A robot in Blogger thought I might be a machine and shut down my ability to post for 36 hours until some person at Blogger checked my blog to verify that it is created by a human-being and isn't machine-created spam.

The alert message read: "Blogger's spam-prevention robots have detected that your blog has characteristics of a spam blog".

Ah! I see. My blog has "characteristics of a spam blog" does it?!

How very dare they!
