Blogger routinely does this, takes down blogs for no good reason, most of the blogs are eventually restored after weeks or months of efforts on the part of the blog owners. So far today I know of two, Gates of Vienna and Babbazee's Brain. Yesterday Michael Travis left this message in a comment:
Debbie & Grouch,
I have just had a long conversation with the Google people. Google has advised me that due to complaint by Weasel Zippers , they have terminated the Christian Website "Babbazeesbrain.Com"
This disgusts me (as An Israeli Jew) and I hope everyone contacts Google for an explanation and not...Weasels!
Psalms and gospel are not a reason for complaint!
If the Zippers have problem, then they should step out of the shadows and explain them selves.
If Christianity is a crime, then so be it!
My job is (as you know) Defence Intelligence. If the 'ZIPPERS" WOULD LIKE TO EXPLAIN THEIR COMPLAINT AGAINST Christians , then they should do it within the next 72 hours

Today we get this word from Greg at Rhymes With Right:
Gates Of Vienna Blog -- MIA
I just found out (H/T Holger of Holger Awakens) that the Gates of Vienna Blog has been removed. I do not know why, neither, according to the tweets from the folks at GoV do they.
GoV is a longstanding anti-jihad blog. I've not always agreed with them, but have respected them. They are also former Watcher's COuncil members.
WHy has the blog disappeared? Why, presumably, has Google shut them down without explanation to the blog owners? This strikes me as very problematic for a number of reasons.
If you know of any other blogs that have been taken down, leave the information in the comment section.
