Blogger is irritating me today

So lauren signed up for a blogger blog (which I’m hosting on my site) and she wants to customize it more. Yea — Not possible with the default blogs — They are a cross between CSS4.0 and XHTML12.0 (at least it seems that way), needless to say they are all very heavy on CSS and XHTML. Tried putting in a few 3rd party templates with an odd result — preview or actuall post would redirect me back to blogger.com. I ended up having to sniff the HTTP headers to find out that the profiles reference a bad picture, which blogger automatically gives a 302 (Resource has moved) back for. So instead of the picture just not showing up — the damn thing redirects the entire browser.

So I go to file a support request and I get the following back:
