Google Wiping Out 14 Year Old Blog Illustrates Why You Need to Control Your Content

Posted on the 18 July 2016 by Worldwide @thedomains

You always hear back up your work and most know they should but don’t. There are news reports out today about Dennis Cooper an artist who ran his blog on Google owned Blogger, has had his blog wiped away by Google.

Cooper wrote on Facebook:

Yesterday afternoon Google disabled my blog and took it offline. They did the same with my email account. Other than being shown a general ‘violation of our terms of service’ statement, I have been given no explanation for this, and I have not received any response to my questions and complaints thus far. Obviously, until or if this problem is resolved, there will be no new blog posts.

Google apparently has not given any explanation. Cooper is considering taking action.

ScienceAlert.com writes:

Cooper told Ethan Chiel from Fusion that he’s now considering suing Google, and PEN America – an organisation that protects freedom of speech in the US and worldwide – is now pressuring Google on Cooper’s behalf to explain why it disabled the blog.

“Blogs and social media accounts serve as crucial outlets for creative and artistic expression for millions of people around the world, as well as venues for open discussion among interested visitors,” said Suzanne Nossel, executive director of PEN America.

This is one of the big negatives when you don’t control your content on your own domain name with your own hosting.
