First of all let me clarify that the change is not just to blogspot.com.es. If Google considers your blog to be a German one then the change would be to blogspot.com.de.
THE.CAT fortunately used wordpress.com so this is not affecting this blog but I find awful what has happened for the following reasons:
– SUCH AN IMPORTANT CHANGE COMES WITHOUT GIVEN NOTICE TO USERS
– IN CATALONIA WE HAVE THE DOMAIN .CAT FOR DOMAINS WRITTEN IN CATALAN OR RELATED TO THE CATALAN CULTURE. AT LEAST THEY SHOULD LET YOU CHOOSE! MAYBE I PREFER BLOGSPOT.COM.CAT
I love .com domains because they are domains that can have a universal appeal. I just use THE.CAT because although it is not a .com domain I hope it has also an international appeal. So to put .es is the opposite of what I want! If I had wanted .es I just could have chosen a free blog with .es. It is a shame that Google separates what united us!
I am going to browse the web to see what can be done. I am going to see if I still have some old blogspot.com registered and I am going to delete it right now.
SHAME ON GOOGLE!
