Suzie at Assorted Babble posted about this too. I don't think Blogger checks blogs but we can FLAG them. Maybe that will draw their attention.

I think Blogger only checks when someone puts up a squawk.They seem to be especially quick to act when it involves "hate speech", we'll see what happens in this case.

I think this qualifies-we hate what they advocate, we hate what they say, we hate what they stand for, we hate what they are-Yep, clear 'hate' speech from my POV.

The only loathsome part about taking action is that you have to actually go to the site in order to flag it. Ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww. I've been and done some icky things in my life (I do live on a farm, afterall) but just the thought of creeping over to those places makes me queasey.

Mufa’khathat

That's a Muslim term for ... well google for it

Allowing the mere word on your site probably violates most of the terms of use
