Afraid of Free Speech

I noticed on my blogger dashboard this message:
This blog has been locked due to possible Blogger Terms of Service violations. You may not publish new posts until your blog is reviewed and unlocked.

This blog will be deleted within 20 days unless you request a review.
As my blog is relatively mild, I suspect someone is trying to shut me down. Obviously a coward afraid of fighting the war of words.

what? I'd suggest you paint that story wide, because this needs to be nipped in the bud. I'm just a jamoke, but I'm sure insty, michelle and others might help.
I bet it was because of the subject matter of the previous story. I bet Blogger has an automatic word flagger that goes into shut-it-down mode for some words. Since you're back up and running, I hope that means I'm right!
Could be. Never thought about that. I'm so naive.
This has happened to some other Blogger users I know. It is the triggers. One cat's blog ended up with a warning message that popped up instead of the blog warning about offensive material for mature audiences etc. etc.

I'm sure it is something to do with trigger words.
I appear to be OK now.
