Members Of The Blogger Community Have To Protect Themselves

And that includes retaining control of their blogs, on their own. If you have a car, you don't give a spare set of car keys to the police, for when you leave your keys at home. Nor do you give a spare set of house keys to the homeowners association. You keep your own car keys, and house keys, under your control.

If we're going to have blogs, have them provided for us in perpetuity, and enjoy publishing anonymously (at our discretion), we have to maintain control of our blogs. Blogger can't provide password resets gratuitously or repeatedly. Our keys to our blogs are our responsibility.

Please, exercise that responsibility.
