I'm Leaving Blogger February 12, 2007

I’m leaving Blogger. You might ask why so I’ll explain.

A well known British atheist by the name of Nick Gisburne had his YouTube account deleted and all his videos wiped because someone objected to his slide show of quotes from the Muslim holy book. It wasn’t the fact that he quoted it, but the fact that the quotes all showed Islam to be a not so peaceful religion. For that YouTube hosed his account.

Many of you might be aware that Blogger is now owned by Google, as is YouTube. In protest I deleted all my YouTube videos, and I’m closing this blog in few weeks. Maybe I’ll change my mind if someone from Google wants to answer this post. If not I won’t be posting anything new here anymore. It’s sad it had to come to this, but Google used to have the motto ‘do no harm’. Now they’re becoming much to corporate and I think we all need to re-evaluate our relationship with Google.

Here’s the link to my new blog. Please update your bookmarks/favorites. While you’re at it, why not yank your blog away from Blogger and head on over to WordPress.

And did I mention, you can import all your blogger posts to WordPress.
