There have also been numerous bloggers with the complaints that their blog has been marked as spam and their blogs being removed (deleted permanently) without warning. These ‘spammers’ have included some that were quite innocent such as Frugal bloggers sharing coupons and deals or Mommy bloggers with product reviews or parenting tips. Google/Blogger does own the content and has the authority to shut down any blog/account without warning if they choose. While Blogger does allow you to publish to your own domain name, they own the database that holds the content to your blog.
Of course the list doesn’t end there. The disappearing act of comments with no way to retrieve them, errors during the process of adding or removing a gadget, deletion of gadgets upon changing layouts and all the downtime due to ‘maintenance’.
