I have to admit that I’m not a big fan of Blogger but tonight I have to give them a pat on the back. I just read on Mediamax’s new blog that their old blog has been labeled a splog and they no longer have access to it.
Why do I get the feeling that somewhere out there, a Blogger employee with a free or low end account on Mediamax recently got an email from Mediamax telling them about their upcoming changes and how they either had to upgrade to a pay account or lose all of the data? I have to admit that even I would have a hard time not pushing that button if I was sitting there looking at gigs of files, not being able to retrieve them, knowing that they’ll be deleted in a few days, and knowing that Mediamax could really care less. That’s what they did it me.
Way to go, Blogger. Now if you could just go ahead and mark their new blog…
Edit: Want to see something really stupid? I just realized that they signed up for the same service that previously marked them as a spammer. I guess they didn’t take the hint.
