Blogger thinks this is spam

After my last post, just moments ago, I noticed that word verification was added to the Blogger post editor for this blog. Apparently Blogger thinks this is spam:

Blogger's spam-prevention robots have detected that your blog has characteristics of a spam blog. (What's a spam blog?) Since you're an actual person reading this, your blog is probably not a spam blog. Automated spam detection is inherently fuzzy, and we sincerely apologize for this false positive.

Before we can turn off mandatory word verification on your posts we'll need to have a human review your blog and verify that it is not a spam blog. Please fill out the form below to get a review.

Find out more about how Blogger is fighting spam blogs.

I hope to get a review soon. Oh, and if the reviewer reads this: word verification seems to break the post preview feature.

Update 2006-01-08: Today my Blog was reviewed and whitelisted. I was just used to the word verification but I guess this is goodbye.

I found out that when using weblog client software such as BlogJet or W.Bloggar, blogger.com automatically lists your blog as a spamblog.

Maybe this is what happened to you?

Or maybe you are being 'punished' for not showing the beautiful ;) blogger toolbar?
