Blogger (blogspot) was out of order during Thursday and Friday. One comment alludes to deleted comments: I hope all have now been restored, but the momentary loss of comments (and at least one post) was due to a technical glitch at Google, not anything we did. We haven't deleted anything. Let's hope Google has finally gotten things back running properly.
This is a major embarrassment for Google, especially since they have been claiming that publishing things "in the cloud" is safe & reliable.
