Back from MSN Spaces

I'm switching back to Blogger.com from MSN Spaces... As much as I like the idea of a blogging site + engine provided by my employer, the content filter which is used at MSN Spaces for blog entries really, really s*cks. Recently I tried to post a completely innocent short notice on the foundation of the Future of Humanity Institute at Oxford University, but MSN Spaces wouldn't let me, claiming that I had used "forbidden" expressions. It did not even tell me what they were, so I didn't have a chance to remove anything that seemed annoying. In the end, I couldn't post, which made me very angry, and I decided to give up MSN Spaces.
