Web weirdness

Strange things are happening. There are blogs that I read almost daily and many of these use Blogger or blogspot. Almost every blog I've tried to access today that uses Blogger cannot be opened by Internet Explorer. There are a few others that don't use Blogger that are similarly "blocked", if that's the correct word.

Blogs that haven't had recent entries, say within a week, will open, even if they do use Blogger.

I have no problem viewing my blog when I'm using Firefox. I haven't linked to very many favorites or bookmarks on Firefox but I guess I will now.

Is anyone else having this problem?

A couple of hours later:

Whatever it was, it's gone away and everything seems to be working again. I'm still moving to Firefox.

Blogger's been having spam bot issues. Lots and lots of blogs have been tagged and locked as spam. Takes a bit of hoop jumping to get them unlocked.

That shouldn't be an issue with IE, but who knows. I use FireFox so hadn't noticed it.

Maybe it's a IE issue. I really prefer FireFox....

There was some bug with Sitemeter (I think) that was crashing IE. They may have fixed it now.
