Extra Post: I'm Blocked

It was quite interesting to log on and post today's entry in my usual fashion...and then discover that I couldn't see it! Apparently our internet filtering service has flagged all the 'dot blogspot dot com' blogs as 'general porn'. So not only can I not read my own blog, I can't read 95% of the other sewing blogs I normally read.

I did report mine as 'should not be blocked', and will report the others as well, but who knows how long it will be before they're unblocked. I suspect they're reviewing each blog to try and sort out the nasty ones. It's a shame that they mass-blocked all blogger accounts before they started the sorting process, but I guess this way the filter subscribers are 'helping' reporting ok blogs that have been blocked. It's a shame that a few people have chosen to post things that have caused the rest of us trouble, but, well, that's life these days.

I have comment notification turned on, so the comments go to my yahoo mail account and I can read them, but until I'm unblocked I can't comment back. And I can post...I just can't look and make sure it looks ok.

Ah, well. I suppose I'll get more sewing done today with most of my time-consumers off limits... ;)
