How can a blog be blocked so unfairly by a Company that had accepted 400 blogs previously?

Who controls WORDPRESS.COM anyway? Does anyone know?

By Kevin Stoda

I had my Wordpress.com Blog access blocked today—and WORDPRESS.COM NEITHER contacted me about it NOR gave me a warning.

What was written on my blog starting this afternoon was simply as follows:


This blog has been archived or suspended for a violation of our Terms of Service.

I have perused the Terms of service to no avail—and do not know what I did that led to the suspension. SHAMELESS, EH? This is no way to treat any prolific blogger who has had a good history with the portale.

In short, after 400 publications in the last two years by me, my blog was thrown out the window. Has anyone else had similar trouble with WORDPRESS.COM or any similar blog portal world-wide???

ANY RATIONALE FOR SUCH TREATMENT?

By the way, well over the majority of writings on my blogs stem from my own writings and research. The rest only promote important news stories, etc. (If I inadvertently cut and pasted something I should not have onto one of the blogs, Wordpress should have made at least an email contact, i.e. telling me why they removed it. Don’t you agree?)

I contacted Wordpress about this 7 times today, but there has been no reply?

I think this is likely either political or economic, i.e. perhaps (a) a fascist government like Burma doesn’t like my writing or (b) a former employer (who I sued in court this year for over 20,000 euros got to Wordpress.com. Alternatively, (c) a company or political party support group who I quoted does not like me quoting them and their work on line—or putting their work on my blogs for readers scrutiny.

What do you think? Feel free to comment or make suggestions. I feel that some of my writings have been stolen from me at this point—as I have no access to quick recovery of some of them.

In the meantime, here is a link to the publication that should have appeared this afternoon.

Both articles were fairly innocuous. Check for yourself.

I was informed after 4 hours that the blog ws blocked because a certain link that I had cited for its good Chinese course was considered a source of spam.

After 48 hours and my having to contact Wordpress several times, my site was finally unblocked as of today.
