I had an email from Google/Blogger telling me that my blog, this very one, had been marked as a spam account.
There was no reason given for this assumption and I took the option to have it reviewed. In the meantime it was not available on the web, nor were the contents available to me from the Android app.
I was also not given any opportunity to backup my decade's worth of post and photos. All my work could have been lost because someone, or rather, some bot objected to my updates.
This morning I had another email to say that the blog had been reinstated.
So was it a human complaint? Or was it a bot? I guess we'll never know as there is no way to communicate with Blogger to find out what the problem was.
Taking the human out of the equation and bits will destroy the work of many honest people.

I think one of the problems with the charging of the TomTom on the cradle using the direct wiring is that the two pins on the mount are getting wet and maybe not working correctly. I have given them a blast of WD40, a little blast, and see if that solves the problem.
Then I saw another V-Strom owner had one of these to cover the pins. Not cheap for a bit of moulded plastic but should do the job when the TomTom isn't in the cradle/mount.
Time will tell!
