Modern Communiction is so AMAZING, ...until it is not, ;-)

Ever think it feels like you are under some weird black cloud....well, this weekend I think I was not meant to use communication...

The first weird thing is that I was doing my last blog entry and trying to look at blogs and this message pops up that says my blog and my email have been yanked off the web. There was a small message that says I should review the terms of service because that could be why my accounts were all yanked off the web.

I read the terms of service and it basically said that if you were posting mature content information it needed to be labeled as such.....I did not think my blog fit into that in any way????

They then suggested if you were posting heavy duty pornographic content you could be yanked....wow, I had talked about Crickets urine PH but I really did not think that fit into that category.....

The last category was that you were not allowed to say do things like talk about your ex wife and say all sorts of really nasty things and perhaps suggest people go visit her.....well, I don't think my blog qualified in that category either.....although recently I did get accused by someone in the local dog club that my blog was a vehicle of hate about the club, LOL, I never did understand what she was talking about and I do not think that anyone would have been yanking my blog for that type of infraction-unless that particular lady had got a job yanking offending blogs off the net.

I mentally reviewed any blogs I had recently read or responded too and I did not THINK I said anything offensive, I sure did not mean to offend if I did...

So having ruled out an infraction of the terms of service, I filled out the form that just said if you disagree with what we did you can fill out this form that asked what you were doing when the problem happened and HOW TO GET AHOLD OF YOU SINCE ALL THE EMAIL ACCOUNTS HAD BEEN PULLED OFF THE WEB. LOL, YIKES! No hint of when they would get ahold of anyone, or if they would or what the next step was if the problem persisted.

The next day I got a simple form email saying sorry for the inconvenience, and my accounts were back on the web. How odd is that??? I guess we should feel safe because if they want to yank everything you have off the net they can do it very efficiently in the blink of an eye. On the bright side it was cool they got it fixed on the weekend, I was thinking given that it did not seem there was a lot of info on how to dispute the problem or find out what happened, I was sure I would have to wait until a business day for someone to figure out a mistake had been made.

The day of the Internet terms of service incident....I was at a seminar and had been texting on my way there, but when I tried to call my kids my cell phone kept saying there was no service. Humm, well, I thought we must be in some cell black hole until much later in the day when I realized the person sitting next to me had been texting and checking her email all day and had the same carrier. WEIRD!!! It felt like I was just not meant to be connected to the world this weekend....

Turns out my hubby decided to get me a new phone and they disconnected my old phone without anyone telling me while I was hours away from home going through the desert and some pretty deserted roads late at night, ughghghghgh. The new phone is an older model of the phone that I knew there were some issues with...., so we had to return it and no one has been able to reactivate my old phone....for two days now.

LOL, poor you. Id probably loose it if my phone didnt work while I was away at a seminar. The blog thing is weird too. It sounds like what happened to "Cow spot dogs" blog. Very weird. Im glad you got it back.

Technology! It can drive you nuts...especially when it's not working!

Gee, what the heck did we get all frustrated about BEFORE the internet and cell phones?

That honestly sounds like spam or something. My blog got shut down once because someone DELETED it! Fortunately, Blogger "recognized" the weird account activity and somehow backed all my stuff up. I had to change my e-mail password and that was it.

I noticed there was a day web I could not get on your blog. Thought it was wierd that you would just up and quit without letting us all know!

Jules said...
