Ann Althouse's blog seems to be missing:


Does anyone know what is going on? Is it a technical problem, related to Blogger's recent outage? Does it relate to Leiter's post about her blog? (To be clear, I have absolutely no knowledge about this whatsoever--I was just surprised to find her blog gone and am wondering if anyone knows why.)

Update: All is well! Althouse herself (h/t RH):

I’M NOT GOING TO FREAK, I’M GOING TO TWEET. Blogger is having problems… to the point where, if you try to go to my blog, you’ll get a message saying it’s removed. According to Blogger Status, they’re working on it. Fortunately, there’s Twitter, and I’m going to hang out there. And there’s also Instapundit, at least for a little while longer. Until Glenn wakes up. Hopefully, Glenn will wake up, and Blogger will wake up very soon.

Updated update (2:18pm West Coast time, 5/13/2011): It actually seems to be a little more complicated than just a technical outage--somehow her blog got flagged as a spam blog, and Blogger is reviewing before they will put it back up. (H/T Instapundit.)

I'm going to close comments on this, and also delete some comments, because I don't want it to turn into a referendum on any other bloggers (and also, of course, because I am a fascist and hate free speech). I really did post this just to try to get information about what was going on.

Glenn Reynolds says it's just a blogger bug that should be fixed soon.

Can we possibly survive without Ann's trenchant social and political analysis?

The problems at Blogger have not resulted in the removal of the blogs, but only in the loss of posts since Wednesday. So it at least looks as if something else is going on.
