It [seems] like Google has officially joined the Barack Obama campaign and decided that its contribution would be to shut down any blog on the Google owned Blogspot.com blogging system that has an anti-Obama message. Yes, it sure seems that Google has begun to go through its many thousands of blogs to lock out the owners of anti-Obama blogs so that the noObama message is effectively squelched. Thus far, Google has terminated the access by blog owners to 7 such sites and the list may be growing.
I cannot find a link to prove the claim, but it is starting to look like this Blogspot shut down of anti-Obama sites occurred because of a concerted effort by Obama supporters.
What they did was go to the Blogspot addresses found on the site of the NoObama coalition called Just Say No Deal and constantly hit the "mark as spam" link so that Google's Blogger would be flooded with spam warnings. This caused Google/Blogger to freeze the sites marked.Apparently, this campaign merely took advantage of Google/Blogger's flawed system of finding spam blogs.

For the record, Cap'n of Blasphemes doesn't care for ANY of our choices -- Pepsi or Coke.
I mean, Obama or McCain. They're both connected to very powerful lobbies (Chicago, and the GOP)-- they're both dangerously unqualified to lead the United States in this time of global uncertainty (one's a rookie, the other's just dangerous) -- they both contain High Fructose Corn Syrup... (meaning they're both tied into Big Corn) and I'm trying to cut that out of my diet, thank you.
And BTW, RC sucks too.
