    I'm just curious if they care about if somebody report a blogger blog for spamming, or what do you think how many reports is enough to take down a blog by google if they really care about it? i think they don't count the reports from the same ip, they count the first but after that totally useless to report from the same ip or how is it works?
    Are there anybody whose blog taken down by google for spamming?!

    But I think Google own technologies to check the blogs.

    I had one spam blog, I mean real spam blog pulling google rss feed and it looked like crap, it took 6 months to get taken down and I think it was because of so many posts per day. A few days ago I had a real blog locked on blogger, I mean I post to it and everything myself, the only copied content I use is youtube videos. I am still trying to get it unlocked and they are taking their time. I have a few other autoblogs on blogger, they originate on my own wordpress hosting and mail posts to blogger automatically, I only post 1 time on them every day or two. They haven't been taken down YET knock on wood. That is not to say they won't all be down tomorrow along with my other real blog. It is really a pain in the ass when they take a blog down especially a real one. If you want to back anything up use a wordpress blog and keep it hidden from people and search engines, then mail all of your posts to blogger, especially if it is a real blog. Or else you could log in to this message one day on your blogger control panel

    Code:
    Blogger's spam-prevention robots have detected that your blog has characteristics of a spam blog. (What's a spam blog?) Since you're an actual person reading this, your blog is probably not a spam blog. Automated spam detection is inherently fuzzy, and we sincerely apologize for this false positive.
    
    We received your unlock request on November 27, 2009. On behalf of the robots, we apologize for locking your non-spam blog. Please be patient while we take a look at your blog and verify that it is not spam.
    
    Find out more about how Blogger is fighting spam blogs.
    
    Go figure they did this to my real blog, their bots are a f%*^ing idiots. Now all of my work from my real blog that I made are locked for google to control, I wish I had followed the advice I am giving you.

    Pretty sure you can be tracked and penalized for this.

    Yeah, and you'll never get it back either. I got mine locked because of copyright, or might have been the erotic content (eventhough I had the adult disclaimer). There are some support forums (or something) where you can complain about the situation (and get no response whatsoever) and I've seen quite a bit of stuff like that in there. I don't think you could just easily flag legitimate blogs though, they might not care about you but there might still be some of that "do no evil doctrine" in those bitches. But if the blog looks just a little bit dodgy, I bet you could.

    What do u mean taken down?

    They can ban the blog from their search engine but they cant take down your blog off a server for spamming unless they own the server your on.

    No fucking way is google going to take down any of my sites and or blogs on my own servers that i own..

    Ive had 100's of them banned from google search results but thats as far as they can go..

    I think the OP is referring to Blogger blogs which is owned by Google, so yes they can and will delete blogs if you use Blogger.

    Ah ok then yeah of course if they own the product/site/servers then they can cut anything they want..

    Yeah thats why i never use anything but my own servers and use a good CMS like word press, vivvo or joomla.

    And fill it with what ever the hell you want, and if google dont like it FUKem!
