# 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.

BlogWalkChicago : Because of my earlier decision to boycott travel to the U.S., I have had to turn down the gracious (and unexpected) invitation I received to BlogWalk Chicago. It was a very difficult decision to make.

More information on the US-VISIT program is available on the DHS web site: click here.


Hi Ed,

as I just e-mailed you I appreciate your standpoint in this. I guess we will have to make a BlogWalk happen in Canada as well.


Thanks for the support. I will be looking into the BlogWalk and Open Space ideas, and talk to a few other Montrealers to see if it makes sense to have a separate BlogWalk meeting here.
