Site Update

Greetings Readers!

Those who tried to access the site over the weekend will have encountered errors. For this, I apologize. Unfortunately, I received the following e-mail from Blogger (my site's platform provider) over the weekend:


Your blog at: has been identified as a potential spam blog. To correct this, please request a review by filling out the form at xxxxx...We find spam by using an automated classifier. Automatic spam detection is inherently fuzzy, and occasionally a blog like yours is flagged incorrectly. We sincerely apologize for this error. By using this kind of system, however, we can dedicate more storage, bandwidth, and engineering resources to bloggers like you instead of to spammers. For more information, please see Blogger Help:

Thank you for your understanding and for your help with our spam-fighting efforts.


The Blogger Team

As a result, they took the blog down for most of the weekend. As of now, things are working, but I'm still waiting for a human to review the site, so there could still be issues going forward. Please bear with me during this process as I work to get the site back to normal.

Hopefully Blogger is true to their word, and things will be back to normal soon. In the meantime, I'll investigate other platforms (including WordPress, which is a platform to which a lot of former Blogger users have moved). If you have any insight or suggestions on this issue, I'd be happy to hear them either by e-mail or in the comments!

In the meantime, thank you for your patience and thanks for bearing with me! Hopefully things will be back to normal soon!

Hi Rayhaan,

You're welcome to post your ideas, but I've never invested on the BSE. If they are ADR's (and are therefore cross-listed) I can have a look, but otherwise perhaps some Indian readers will get back to you.
