# Notice (Oct 19/05): So ends my stay here on Blogger. This morning Google implemented an anti-spam 'feature' that forces me to answer a challenge phrase when I want to post to my own blog. No notice of the change, nothing. Worse is that it doesn't even work! I type the phrase, submit, "An error occured", post deleted. Damn you, Google. Chances are I will revive my blog somewhere else, sometime soon. I'll post the new coordinates here as soon as they become available. (BTW, I'm unable to post anything to my RSS stream, so I'd appreciate it if readers could spread the word and ask people to take a look at this notice)

Update (Oct 19/05, ~noon): After a frustrating few hours (and not just trying out alternatives to Blogger), I've decided that this is a good time to take a break from all this. A day? A week? Who knows. But I need to step away from it before I pass a heavy magnet over the whole mess.

Update 2: According to this post, the reason I'm seeing the CAPTCHA (challenge phrase) is that Blogger has classified my blog as spam. Thanks. User for five years and now I'm spam. I searched the Blogger site, but there is no mention of how to get the spam flag turned off. There is also no way of contacting anyone at Blogger. Wow. Spam they say I am, so spam I must be. Maybe it is time to take a break.

Matthew Good puts is so well :
I’ve been monitoring numerous sources all night and have been struggling with what to say in an entry if George Bush wins. To be honest, at the moment I'm at a complete loss for words. How any rational person can support this administration is beyond me.

My previous comments about not wanting to believe that the US folks were duped comes from a desire to believe that people are essentially mentally fit, able to remember and evaluate facts against their values and make more or less rational decisions.

But deep down, I can't help but thinking: "These americans are fucking nuts."


Ed, you are right. Most Americans are afraid and angry which together equals INSANE. My dad's #1 reason for being for Bush is because he is "kicking Arab ass". Nice. The thinking is something like "Arabs did 9-11, they must all pay". I'm disgusted.
