Censorship at Blogger

Today we have received this notice:

Subject: [#93976751] notice regarding holocaustcontroversies.blogspot.com

Hello,

We'd like to inform you that we've received a complaint that your blog
holocaustcontroversies.blogspot.com contains confidential information.
Please note that our Terms of Service prohibit posting confidential items
on your blog. Accordingly, we have had to remove the content in question.

Please refer to our Terms of Service for more details:
http://www.blogger.com/terms.g

Thank you for your understanding.

Sincerely,
The Blogger Team
We found that a posting about Carmelo Lisciotto's spamming and impersonation has been deleted. Now it is available here.

The posting did not contain any information that is not publicly available, therefore it contained no confidential information.

I should note that Blogger censors still haven't deleted Carmelo's impersonation blogs and profile, despite my request and despite their (false, as it turns out) assurance that they "take impersonation very seriously". Yet they promptly removed an innocent posting without even consulting us.

It is also notable that H.E.A.R.T. thug Carmelo is trying to make the slate clean again. Too late.

If you're worried about Blogger censorship, you can write to support@blogger.com and tell them what you think.

You should consider dumping Blogger, I think.

Orac, what replacement would you recommend?
