I really, really, wish I could remember who it was that said they could not get into my blog. They posted this on their blog. Instead, when clicking on the URL they got a page where Webroot indicated there was a virus on my page!! This was just a few days ago. Guess what? I had the same thing happen to me yesterday when I tried to see a post I had written on my own blog.
I scanned my PC for viruses with Webroot which is the anti-virus I use and was recommended by an IT person and nothing was found. I emailed Webroot and have not gotten a response as of yet. Luckily, I rebooted my PC and was able to get into my own blog then! Wowie! Something is rotten in nefarious Blog Land. I do remove the spam comments from my blogs before allowing them to post unless they comment immediately. Webroot is not among the top ten virus packages...maybe I should ask my friend who used to work for the Secret Service technology office what virus he/she would recommend.
In another case, I have found that certain blogs I try to comment on after reading default to a Google login with my real name and since I do not use that login, I cannot comment on their blog. I will only log in with Blogger. So, if I have not commented on your blog in months, it means I cannot log in as Tabor.
I read that 50 million users of Facebook had their identities stolen and/or could not log in. That has not happened to me...yet.
These are certainly complicated times.
