Within weeks of their decision, after the excrement his the oscillating device, Google reversed their decision to censor their authors. Rather than switch back, I stayed on the paid domain - because I'd paid for it!
Today, I received an email that said:
Hello,Sooooooooo... I'm not a techie, and I know nothing about this outfit Google is handing me off to, but to make a long story short - I ain't going!

I spent this morning moving all my 'stuff' back to the free side of blogger. I'll stay there until they have another round of censorship.... when that happens, and it WILL, I will take all THREE of my blogs and hit the road.
I still have a Wordpress account, and they permit 'mature' content, as long as it's not child porn or violence. That will be my first stop in my journey to maintain my free speech.....
In the mean time.... enjoy!
