Great post Eddi, as usual!

Thanks so much Hamlet for posting this -- and special thanks for my Second Life partner Benja for his comment above! The question of an adult rating has been very problematic since Google Blogspot decided to "award" my blog with this without even notifying me in late December - after publishing my blog for 6 years and generating over 2 million pageviews. I do not run real life or second life photos that are sexual or nude, there may be an occasional backside of an avatar that is shown but that is about it. The effect on my monthly page views has been devastating, they are down from 40,000 - 50,000 a month to about half that. Once your blog is rated "adult" you are practically invisible in search. I assumed this was a mistake, however I cannot find any way to contact Google to ask for a review other than to post a question in Blogger Help and hope that someone comes along from Google that can review your blog. Someone from Blogger did contact me and told me that it could be a problem with how my DNS in handled at Dynadot which hosts www.eddihaskell.com, but I corrected that and still cannot get rid of my adult rating. I want to give any potential blogger some advice -- do not use Google Blogspot if you want any customer service or control over your blog. You will not get it. Use something else.
