Wendy Brandes

Our favorite local blog queen, the immensely talented jeweler Wendy Brandes, has suffered a blow at the hands of blogger!

She received the following notice from Blogger, and is therefore unable to post....
This is a message from the Blogger team.

"Your blog, at, has been identified as a potential spam blog. For an explanation of what spam blogs are, please see Blogger Help:
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. To request a review, please fill out the form found here:
We will take a look at your blog and unlock it within four business days. Please note that if we do not hear from you within 20 days, we will remove your blog. If this blog does not belong to you, then you do not have to do anything. Any other blogs you may have will not be affected.
Since you are an actual person reading this, your blog is probably not spam. We find spam by using an automated classifier. Automatic spam detection is inherently fuzzy, and occasionally a blog is flagged incorrectly. We sincerely apologize for this erroneous result. By using this kind of system, however, we can dedicate more storage, bandwidth, and engineering resources to users like you instead of to spammers. Thank you for your understanding and for your help in our spam-fighting efforts.

The Blogger Team"

Wendy can be found at Wendy Hates Blogger, as she waits for the Blogger team to realize their error. We stand behind you, Wendy!

Now I know how all those innocent people who have solid alibis feel when Ice-T yells at them on Law & Order SVU.
