Last night, I decided to meld two of my Blogs, which have similar, if not the same, theme and personality. I was instantly reminded of the Beatles' song; "I should've known better", or whatever it was.
One blog - (117 Posts), another - (88 Posts). There were a couple of 'double-up posts' so, all up, I was exporting (on Blogger in Draft, naturally), about 212 Posts.
Now, having been caught a long time ago, by the SPAM Robot, for posting in excess of 50 posts in a 24 hrs period, I decided to discuss this with a friend. We decided that, as it was an Export/Import, there should be NO worries, but to test it anyway. I did test it, and found NO problem.
OK, using Blogger in Draft, I proceeded to Export the XML File for my blog. No problems. I Imported the XML File to another blog - NO Problems. I then went through each of the 'Imported' posts on Import blog Post Editor, and Published the lot - 112 Posts - NO problem. Not even a hiccough ...
- until this morning...
Now, I have some questions:
- Why would the new Feature, Import/Export, not entertain the idea of an Import having more than 50 posts?
- Why would it wait until the job was well and truly finished, (over 8 hrs - at least, I was asleep by then), before adding a Word Verification Captcha to my Post Editor - on Both Blogs?
- Why the hell, when you are logged-in to both of YOUR Blogs, would the Robot even think you are Spamming yourself? For crying out loud!
- OK, they'll remove it after 24 hours. So, why put it on to begin with?
