Free at Last!

About 24 hours after their capture, Tao of Poker and Coventry have been freed. No longer frozen or caught in limbo.

Thanks to everyone for their support during these trying times.

Half Done

Well, good news. Two of my blogs have been unfrozen. Tao of Pauly and Truckin' are free!

On a sad note, flags are still at half mast until Tao of Poker and Coventry are released. AlCantHang is also hostage. Keep all them in your prayers.

Flagged by a Bot; I'm in Exile

This blog has been locked due to possible Blogger Terms of Service violations. You may not publish new posts until your blog is reviewed and unlocked.

This blog will be deleted within 20 days unless you request a review.
This was a cold explanation that I got from Blogger/Google. They decided to freeze four of my blogs because I'm suspected by their bots for being a spam blog.

Yes, I am unable to publish content on Tao of Pauly, Tao of Poker, Truckin', and Coventry Phish & Music blog.

I requested a review of my blogs, and I am patiently awaiting a response. Some bloggers have been flagged for over two weeks without even hearing one peep from the powers to be, so my outlook is grim. I am in the process of working on a suitable solution for all parties involved.

For now, this new/old blog will be only outlet until my problems with Google/Blogger junta are resolved. Ironically, Tao of Bacon and Tootie's Bong (an old dream blog that never took flight) were two of my blogs that were not flagged by the bots.

I really could use the time away from the grind of blogging, but the timing of my frozen accounts could not have happened at a worse time...
1. August 1 is Jerry Day and I had two special posts already saved in draft for Coventry when I got flagged.

2. The new issue of Truckin' was supposed to be published this weekend.

3. And... I'm running a special tournament for the Tao of Poker's fifth birthday on Tuesday.
Yeah, the timing blows. Flagged by a bot.

Oh well. So welcome to Tootie's Bong.

And in case you were wondering why this is called Tootie's Bong, the name has its origins in an old Facts of Life Episode...

No Longer a Dream Blog

Tootie's Bong was originally created to be a group blog where writer's scribble down their dreams. It had a very short life... started/ended in November of 2006. It's been a defunct blog for almost 20 months... until now.
