Better And Better

If you don't draw yours, I won't draw mine. A police officer, working in the small town that he lives in, focusing on family and shooting and coffee, and occasionally putting some people in jail.

Apparently, the Blogger 'bot fears me,

and thinks that I may be a Spam Blog.

What the heck?!?

Is it because of the uncharacteristically large spike in hits from the Collaboration? (Thanks for coming, folks! More good stuff to hit the site soon-- stay tuned!)

Anyway, they say that it may be two days before I can post...


If you're reading this, then I can post anyway, despite the red and yellow strip along the top of the screen...

Edit: The embargo seems to have been lifted. Took about 4 hours.

WHOA...that's wild...

I haven't seen that. But then I haven't had quite the spike that you have, either ;)

I wouldn't know-- your SiteMeter seems to be set to private...

Wow! Your Perspectives posts spiked your hits that much? I remember 2 days that my hits trippled. Didn't know why until I figured out that Ambulance Driver and LawDog had linked me. But after a few days my hits went back to their normal numbers.

It does suck, and I hope they never think my blog is spam petaQ (a Klingon curse), but it's cool if it helps fight some of the real spam. I hate seeing that crap on my blog!

That's pretty funny but I can understand why you're having the problem. That story was EXCELLENT! I felt like I was in the car with you. Great idea! You all did an awesome job!

BTW: Thanks for all you do to help keep the Great State of Texas safe and sound, especially your little piece of it. You are appreciated!

I dunno why that happened.

I've had a few big instalanches and that never shut down VFTP.

I suspect that it's because of all the outflow on the Collaboration post caused. Their system saw that many people following a link to a particular post, and then a link out of that post and thought it looked potentially spammy.

Tam, ever had a post that quintupled your traffic, on a weekend?!?

You've already got rockstar status, so just doubling would be mighty impressive.

When we mere roadies see quadruple digit hits for a single day for the first time, we're shocked and amazed.

Look at Sunday the 29th.

1100 is normally a pretty good Sunday at VFTP...
