Bad Blogger Day

Well, Google has locked us out of our blog. Like many before us, we are getting this error:

We're sorry...

... but your query looks similar to automated requests from a computer virus or spyware application. To protect our users, we can't process your request right now.

We'll restore your access as quickly as possible, so try again soon. In the meantime, if you suspect that your computer or network has been infected, you might want to run a virus checker or spyware remover to make sure that your systems are free of viruses and other spurious software.

We apologize for the inconvenience, and hope we'll see you again on Google.

I'm posting this through my "Performancing" FireFox extension, which seems to still be working.

I haven't a clue how to get around this problem (suggestions welcome). It is, apparently, related to IP addresses somehow. Unfortunately, we have little control over the fact that HughesNet forces our HTTP traffic onto a proxy (random IP every time) in order to provide "acceleration."

If this post goes up OK, I'll come back in a few minutes and give the update I was trying to post when Blogger refused to let me in...
