Blogger has apparently decided to delete posts on various blogs that contain musical clips (whether mp3 or video format), even when the author has the permission and indeed the enthusiasm of the artist or record label.

You can read some thoughts about it here and here.

I really don’t like this at all. While my blog isn’t a music blog, and I rarely if ever post any sort of video or audio on it, it rankles me to think of the possibility of my thoughts and my words being deleted by some anonymous Blogger tech simply because they perceive that I could be violating some copyright law (without first checking into the situation).

Therefore, I’ll be switching over to WordPress in the next day or so. Stay tuned for my new address.
