Maintenance - blogger was down

This post has nothing to do with bitching out my Amway upline.

Blogger was down for about 24 hours about mid-day Thursday May 12 until mid-day Friday May 13 for posting and comments. Blogs were still able to be read.

I'm not sure what time it went down. Blogger was working before I went out yesterday morning but by the time I came home late in the afternoon it was unavailable. They are still working at bringing back missing posts and comments.

I didn't post anything new on Thursday and as far as I know nothing from Married To An Ambot is missing.

However if anyone posted comments yesterday - they are not sitting in the queue to be approved. Whether or not they show up in a few hours or are lost forever I do not know. I'm not ignoring your comment if you posted one. Its just not there anymore. Gone to the twilight zone.


  1. Phew! For a while there, I thought it waas amway-big-brother.


  2. Ha ha - no! Although I'm sure Amway would prefer I didn't post about what a bunch of assholes my upline are and the overpriced products that I don't like, they don't really seem to care a whole lot about my blog. You know - just like that "who cares" attitude that IBO's get!

    I was one of the luckier bloggers. Judging by their support forum many bloggers lost posts, comments, some even lost their blog altogether. They're still trying to restore everything.

    I just wanted to give a heads up to anyone who might have posted a comment on Thursday morning or afternoon that I'm not ignoring them. There is nothing in the queue. If anyone posted a comment waiting for moderation it has disappeared. I don't know if it will show up again in the queue.


Comments are moderated but we publish just about everything. Even brainwashed ambots who show up here to accuse us of not trying hard enough and that we are lazy, quitters, negative, unchristian dreamstealers. Like we haven’t heard that Amspeak abuse from the assholes in our upline!

If your comment didn’t get published it could be one of these reasons:
1. Is it the weekend? We don’t moderate comments on weekends. Maybe not every day during the week either. Patience.
2. Racist/bigoted comments? Take that shit somewhere else.
3. Naming names? Public figures like politicians and actors and people known in Amway are probably OK – the owners, Diamonds with CDs or who speak at functions, people in Amway’s publicity department who write press releases and blogs. Its humiliating for people to admit their association with Amway so respect their privacy if they’re not out there telling everyone about the love of their life.
4. Gossip that serves no purpose. There are other places to dish about what Diamonds are having affairs or guessing why they’re getting divorced. If you absolutely must share that here – don’t name names. I get too many nosy ambots searching for this. Lets not help them find this shit.
5. Posting something creepy anonymously and we can’t track your location because you’re on a mobile device or using hide my ass or some other proxy. I attracted an obsessed fan and one of my blog administrators attracted a cyberstalker. Lets keep it safe for everyone. Anonymous is OK. Creepy anonymous and hiding – go fuck yourselves!
6. Posting something that serves no purpose other than to cause fighting.
7. Posting bullshit Amway propaganda. We might publish that comment to make fun of you. Otherwise take your agenda somewhere else. Not interested.
8. Notice how this blog is written in English? That's our language so keep your comments in English too. If you leave a comment written in another language then we either have to use Google translate to put it into English so everyone can understand what you wrote or we can hit the Delete button. Guess which one is easier for us to do?
9. We suspect you're a troublemaking Amway asshole.
10. Your comment got caught in the spam filter. Gets checked occasionally. We’ll get to you eventually and approve it as long as it really isn’t spam.
