Blog B Gone

SO done with Blogger.

A blog I deleted several years ago is nonetheless there, with, apparently, somebody else's email associated with the account. I'm aware that when you delete a blog you risk someone else taking over the URL, but that's not what I'm talking about. All the old posts are there too. My posts. Except I can't access them.

Would love to discuss this with Blogger, but, oh, you can't! No support for you. No email, ever. You can follow 60 automated links that have nothing to do with your problem, and then when they don't solve your problem, your only recourse is to post about it in a public forum. Um. Okay.

Obviously this is not a service I pay for, and as such, Blogger is free to alienate me with their crappy practices all they like. I'm not making any demands. But as with Facebook, I'm also not obligated to support a service that has no respect whatsoever for the privacy of its users.

Maybe I'll just get Twitter. It's not like I ever have anything to say that couldn't be said in less than 15 words anyway.

Will leave this up for a bit so my peeps know what happened to me. And I'd better delete all my posts before I delete the blog entirely, now that I know Blogger doesn't actually know what the word "delete" means.

Edit: At Gekko's lovely suggestion, I set up a Wordpress bloggie instead here. I was just playing around with it and don't have all my peeps in the link section yet, so don't yell at me. Or do yell at me, and that way I'll get to it quicker, whichever.
