404ed-Out

If you tried to visit the last day or two, you probably saw Google's 404 page.

Apparently, at some point Wednesday or Wednesday night, Google decided The Cyberculturalist was spam. I do not know when this was decided, specifically, nor why; I don't know if someone reported it as spam or if Google automatically signaled someone or what.

Neither The Cyberculturalist nor The Weirding are spam. I do not, have not, and will not ever spammed anyone or anything; I, like everyone else, detest spam and have actually done quite a bit to help fight it in the past. In fact, some e-mail configuration files are set to be uploaded to The Cyberculturalist very soon; these files will help protect your mailbox and computer by automatically trashing specific messages and moving others to your Trashcan (if you use OE or Outlook).

I really don't know why this happened and Google isn't talking - as usual.

Google is an exceptionally evil corporation. In cases such as this, it should be incumbent they explain their misbehavior. It's shit like this that has forced people like me, who were stringently opposed to governmental interference in the Web's development in the past, to admit that some agency(s) need to get involved!

So, I apologize for the suspension, but do not know why, how, nor even when it occurred, so I can't say for certain that it won't happen again. I can say this much, though: The Cyberculturalist is a free-standing entity and can be erected under different software within a matter of hours.
