I get a lot of reciprocal traffic with Emma and Scott of Mrs. Kelly’s Playhouse. Well, I used to, until Blogger shut them down.
Scott dropped me a note to pass on the news that they have reopened under a new URL:
Now, while I fully support the right of any webhost to terminate a contract, I think it’s poor practice for Blogger (acquired by Google, a few years ago) to block the blog without contacting the owners. According to Scott, attempts to contact Google have gone unanswered. It would be easy for Google to write a script that sends out an email when it blocks a blog for TOS concerns.
A few years ago, Yahoo started to get a bad rep for suddenly dropping sexuality related groups and profiles. I suggest that anyone in the sexuality community start looking at some ways to back up articles and media in case Google is trying to give Blogger a more squeaky clean image makeover.
