2013 Guest Blog by Palin Smith Unpublished for "Violating" Community Guidelines
The only way to contact Google was to edit the post and submit it for review. Google approved and re-published the following, which only goes to show that the "review" was conducted by an algorithm.
What on earth are you talking about? Specifically, how does this post violate any guidelines?
I no longer have access to the post since it was unpublished. How could I possibly edit the post if I don't have access to it or know what part of it violated guidelines and how so?
This post is over nine years old. What prompted the review? How was it "flagged"? Why, after nine years, is there suddenly a problem?
Your email mentions my "content has violated our Malware and Viruses policy". The idea that malware or a virus was deliberately put in the blog post is absurd! Specifically, what was the nature of the malware/virus and why did it take nine years for it to manifest?
Maybe there was a hacker. Maybe Blogger should transition blog addresses to an https prefix.
Below is Google's notice of cancelation (sic):
