I'm confused. I've been posted similar link roundups almost every day since January of 2009. This has never happened before. The content does not contain malware or viruses, just links to other (mainstream) sites.

18 years on Blogger and it looks like Google wants to kick me off and will find a fake reason to do so.

Look below for a revamped post with the links; hopefully it will begin to show up as I reformat it.

Update: It appears the domain has been flagged as malware, which may explain the issue.

It shows up. Can't have the truth out there, it blows up their narrative.

Google acts like a monopoly.

I'm not a lawyer but I do know that those suffering damages from monopolistic practices can suit for triple damage.

On the other hand, if something like hosting or platforming is free, then you need to look for the attached strings.

Google's behavior will result in less information and opinion available in public because your costs will rise to make that information available.

Long run, we readers will have to start paying the sites that provide us information like Doug does.

I'm willing because I HATE Google.

I had to experiment to find out which links Google kept flagging... this bundle of three appears to be the culprit.

I wonder if the last link is the one that was flagged as "malware"...

Perhaps one of the links in your post was to a site that has been compromised by malware.

directorblue said...

Whoopie, I thought that might be the case... but Chrome hasn't flagged any of those links as bad, which is why I'm a bit skeptical it's malware.

It's time someone brought an anti-trust suit against Google and their monopolistic practices. Just for shits and giggles.

The social media people are getting too big for their britches.

Their censorship is motivated by political activism, and is not out of concern for decency, kindness or good manners.

These same people tolerate the most vulgar, obscene garbage out of the leftists and other demographics...including predation and seduction involving children.
