Update on List and Admin

Just so y'all know, there has been a deluge of spam blogs (SPLOGS) applying for membership. Also, brand new blogs with 51 posts on one day and none of them original content, blogs in foreign languages, and blogs just not meeting the requirements.

Here are the requirements as they stand when people join:

Rules Only ENGLISH language blogs may join. Your blog should be an established blog that is updated frequently with original content.

No blog titles or post titles containing profanity, no pictures of a sexual or suggestive nature, no popunders, popovers or redirects allowed. No duplicate content, illegal downloads, outdated content or spyware.

We do require a GRAPHIC voting link back to us from the blog that you are submitting. Install the BlogVillage voting graphic on your blog. You must vote for your blog by clicking on the GRAPHIC voting link on your blog--at the first of each month--to keep your blog active.

There have been some great blogs apply, but then they do not put the voting banner on their blog. I have a limited amount of time to help these new people. Is there anyone who would volunteer to help the newbies? I would just shoot the newbies blog URL and email to you and you could follow up? If not, I will struggle through as best I can. I am having a major health problem and will not be around as much as I have been. Until I have been on the medication, I do not know what to expect. Any help you could give would be great.

They have finally found a medicine that helps me, so send the newbie URL's to me. I'm sorry to hear that you are dealing with health issues. BV hassles are just one more thing to stress over, as I well know, but your health is far more important.

I had bouts of those spam blog storms, too, but the gotop admin could not find a common IPS to block.

Thanks, Rosemary! If I need help, I will call upon you. I was hoping someone else might step up . . .

I would have been happy to help had my personal blog not been bounced for expressing a viewpoint.

In any case, I've done nothing to do anything with the one blog you didn't deactivate nor did I submit another.

You haven't responded to email so, knowing you moderate, it seemed this was the best way to try and communicate.

I'd like to be involved in Blog Village again so if you're going to allow that let me know and if not, also let me know, so I can take care of my voting links one way or another.

Tony, you have left many angry notes on this board that have been deleted. You have also sent numerous emails to me that have nothing to do with why you were banned.

When all else fails, you should always try an apology.
