I've just sent in my 5th request to have my blog reviewed by and word verification removed. That means it's been five weeks since I've been categorized this way. Here's the message I receive:

Your blog requires word verification

Blogger's spam-prevention robots have detected that your blog has characteristics of a spam blog. (What's a spam blog?) Since you're an actual person reading this, your blog is probably not a spam blog. Automated spam detection is inherently fuzzy, and we sincerely apologize for this false positive.

Before we can turn off mandatory word verification on your posts we'll need to have a human review your blog and verify that it is not a spam blog. Please fill out the form below to get a review.

Yes, folks, five weeks of this. See anything here that looks like spam? See any reason I shouldn't be treated right? Any suggestions on how to resolve this issue? I've left messages at their forum more than once. Nothing has changed. Are there any humans at who can review this blog? I could use some good advice. Please leave me a suggestion!

Jeez-o-pete, what a crock! Makes you wonder if there ARE any human beings at blogger. Five requests? Five weeks?

I can't imagine how you got put in that classification. Kinda scary it could happen to ANY of us at any time.

hmmm - zxnkvv ok, I THINK I'm reading it right. Or is that a "w"?

If links to outside blogs will help, note I've linked 4x (one which you probably won't like, but that's life).

I'm with Marvin - if there are any live human people (not outsourced in Madagascar), you'd thnk they've have fixed this by now!

Why I left Blogger!

Wordpress is waaaay better (for some things).

That smiley face they use to track yr stats still creeps me out.

I don't know what made them think that. I went back a bit and still don't know what they are talking about. Maybe this time will work though.

So far, no changes for the better.
