Any lefty blogs affected by Blogger glich?

MichelleMalkin and other blogs are reporting about a conservative blog named Betsy's Page that suddenly disappeared. She is also naming 4 or 5 other blogs also affected. One of the blogs I link to "Generation Why" also was taken out by a Blogger glich. Jason has decided to move his blog off Blogger and I have updated the link if you want to find it. Apparently, with Betsy's Page some new Blogger anti-spam software thought her whole blog was spam and took it out. Then somebody else took her URL while she was down and there was another 5 hour outage while Blogger negotiated with the new owner to yield the URL.

So I was just wondering if this is a Google/Blogger-Conservative thing? Or did any lefty blogs get affected by this glich. Although I have issues with Google and how their politics affects their business decisions (China, child porn protection), I have not criticized them too much. They are hosting my blog for free, so it does not seem like the right thing to do. There has been a lot of spam out there and if Blogger is trying to mitigate that, I applaud them. I am just curious if this anti-spam software is an equal opportunity blog eater.

Maybe some of my lefty readers can let me know if they have come across reports from the left side of blogs being eaten.

    Nothing being eaten, but i am having problems with my sidebar. I have a working knowledge of HTML and JAVA, but for some reason my sidebar has gone to the bottom of the page and stays there. I have worked on this for hours and have yet ot find the solution.

    Also, the Ostroy report has been down for the past day...maybe he is revamping.

    As far as Google I have a problem with them and YAHOO. Their all tough talk about free speech until it comes time to make some huge coin and then they fold. Yahoo even gave up the IP of a blogger to the Chinese GOVt and now he is in the Klink.

    When it comes to Free Speech and Global Capitalism the ALMIGHTY DOLLAR trumps individual rights much for exporting Democracy.

    Ostroy now looks half-eaten?

    No problems with my blog, but somehow I doubt that I would be high on anyone's hit list.

    Your blog has become a habit of mine, so keep up the great work.

    Thanks Chris. I am still struggling against the clock every day, but I was glad to get a few posts out this weekend.
