In case you haven't noticed, there is continuously increasing rate of *DMCA takedown notifications*.
The newer the release, the more the chances of the respective topic getting red-flagged.
Even though the post in question doesn't get automatically deleted, it still is a frustrating experience.
Google Blogger resets it to "Draft" status and expects the author to remove any *infringing content*.
Failure to do so within a certain period of time (if you know how long that is, please enlighten me) results in permanent deletion.
No recovery whatsoever, gone for good - advanced users may still find traces by using the Cached page search I guess, but that's not the purpose here.

Needless to say that the idea of messages, posts, pages and -if the shit hits the fan/worst case scenario comes true- entire blogs (For whom the bell tolls?) disappearing without a trace doesn't appeal to me. In fact I find it preposterous.
As a precautionary measure, I registered in BayWords.com, to put my mind at ease.
You have to admit, the idea of uncensored blogging seems comforting.
Expect more information over the weekend, right now I can barely keep my eyelids open let alone elaborate on the matter...

I'd rather no one gets burned from this so do what you gotta do.
