Well, this is wild.

My blog posts -- and comments from others -- have disappeared a number of times today.

This is really bizarre. Censorship? Worm? Timid blog host? I have no idea. But my posts have been eliminated FIVE TIMES TODAY -- and the evidence is below.

If this continues, this blog will be history!

Comments that were posted when the blog post for today was visible, and I saw, thanks to email:

As Muslims we are required to respect all religions, be it people who are Christians, Jewish, Hindu
So i’m really surprised at the pictures published in the newspaper, and also of their false nature. Maybe people should read about Prophet Muhummmad peace be upon him, and realise that he was a mercy to all mankind.
Attacking the prophet peace be upon him by drawing such pictures is attacking Muslims directly.
We dont draw pictures of other prophets like Abraham, Moses, Jesus, infact we respect them, and would never think to do such drawings.

Steve, it looks like it's some sort of Blogger-wide problem with new posts vanishing and reappearing, nothing targetted at you. It's just happened to my Jack Kirby weblog, and I've seen a few others mention it. I'm sure it'll be fixed soon. Just remember to keep a backup of any substantial post in case it vanishes forever.

probably true...

but that initial post, from "Muslim," really illustrates (no pun intended) the nature of the problem when he says drawing cartoons like that are a "direct attack" on Muslims.

not in western civilization, they're not.

"clash of civilizations," anyone?

I predict ...

It was a great pressure from outer space that zapped your blog, turning it into a jelly like substance (much like the mind of a Muslim), all full of viscos jism and ready to al-ky-duh your ass for daring to point out the value of satire. Are not opinions made through cartooning a responisble and polite way to show those who would demand we believe what they want us to believe that we have this little thing we do; it's called thinking, liking to form our own opinions? I have the damn right to disagree with any Muslim, Jew, Nazi, Christian, criminal, Jesus-Goon, Holy roller ... anyone ... and since when is disagreeing an attack? I'd say blowing you up, or smacking you in the mouth, that's an attack. Drawing or writing something that upsets or pisses off is the very nature of the game, the difference between stick and stone and words. Pens mightier than swords is only true when they can't shove their sword up your ass.
I predict this jelly pressure will cause all the horror of a massive system crash just as you finish your magnum opus, or your magnificient octopus, and this small habitance will become as Denver, uninhabitable, mired in the sticky stuff of the inability to brook the ideas of another and demand, force, coerse and strangle them into believing as they do. I predict this place shall be called ...

The pressure from outer space has lifted! The jelly-like mass has congealed back into the blogosphere! All Praise A -- uh, whomever.
