Have You Seen dwcmike?

Mike, at spanked hubby, has told me that many of his regular readers can no longer see his blog. Since many of those readers come here too, he has asked me to let you know he's still there, and would like to help with the problem.
If you want to email Mike, his email address is
I'm sure he'd be glad to hear from you.

This is a problem that seems specific to blogs that have warnings about adult content or offensive material.

If you are one of the readers who can't see Mike's blog and you aren't using Firefox as your browser, you could try that for a start. You can download it for free here. You could also try reading it through a reader like Google Reader.
If you use Internet Explorer, try upgrading to version 7.

Please, don't read his blog -- or any spanking blog -- from work. It's very dangerous, and not worth the risk of outing yourself unintentionally.

It's also not a good idea to use a beta version of a browser; there could be bugs in it that still need to be fixed.

If you can't see my blog either, except through a reader or RSS feed, please let me know.

From Hermione's Heart

Hi Hermione!

No problem here viewing your blog or Mike's blog either. I use Firefox, BTW!

But thanks for getting the word out that he's having some blogger troubles!

Hell-o Hermione:
I had no problems viewing dwcmike's blog. It looks like a very nice blog.
How is Ron's hand? I hope it is much better today
Take care

I can't see dwcmike, and recently I have suddenly been unable to see many blogs, such as JFlame's.
I hope it's not permanent, whatever it is.

Thanks for posting about the problem, Hermione. One good girl spanking for you.

I can see everyone just fine, but I've noticed that sometimes I click on a link and it won't send me there, even with a retry. I found if I go to the web address and add the www. in front it will then work.

I don't know if this is a bug in firefox, but that is what I use. I just know that it doesn't happen all the time. It's annoying, but at least I know how to fix it.

Hope things work out for Mike!



There have been a few blogs posting about this problem. It is effecting blogger blogs with a content warning page.

The solution is, as has already been stated, is to use a Mozilla based web browser, such as Firefox.

I recommend Flock ( This has a lot of tools that Explorer does not have, that are useful to anyone blogging themselves. It also allows you to write blog entries in a web browser window, letting you put images, from sites like Flickr, directly into a post without downloading it first. This should especially be of interest to bloggers based in the UK, who have just come under the new "Thought Crime" laws and may be wary of what they download to their hard drives.

My hubby was having the same problem, there were many blogs he could not see even mine. He finally fixed the problem by upgrading his IE browser from 6 to 7. Now once again he can read hid favorite blog Spanked Hubby.
I hope this helps anyone out there

Hermione, I too can see both blogs fine but then I use firefox. I hope Mike resolves the problem as his blog is an interesting read.
