UPDATE & BUMPED
I've apparently paid for my intervention on Althouse's part. Patterico is reporting that Nitecruzr was flagging the Google e-mail accounts of people who were criticizing him in the help thread regarding Althouse's blog.
It turns out that this did happen to me last night, but I had originally misconstrued it for an operator error thing on my part.
I'm now officially ticked off. I'll be trying to contact Google for some answers Monday.
