Damn, I'm not spamming!

Wow, this blog is off to an amazing start... I haven't even had a chance to post anything, and google has marked this blog as a potential spam blog.

Here is the message I received:
Your blog at: has been identified as a potential spam blog. To correct this, please request a review by filling out the form at [link removed].

Your blog will be deleted in 20 days if it isn't reviewed, and your readers will see a warning page during this time. After we receive your request, we'll review your blog and unlock it within two business days. Once we have reviewed and determined your blog is not spam, the blog will be unlocked and the message in your Blogger dashboard will no longer be displayed. If this blog doesn't belong to you, you don't have to do anything, and any other blogs you may have won't be affected.

We find spam by using an automated classifier. Automatic spam detection is inherently fuzzy, and occasionally a blog like yours is flagged incorrectly. We sincerely apologize for this error. By using this kind of system, however, we can dedicate more storage, bandwidth, and engineering resources to bloggers like you instead of to spammers. For more information, please see Blogger Help:
So, hint to all new bloggers using - fill out some profile information and post something, or you'll have to go through this process as well.
