Skip to comments.Why was my Wordpress blog disabled?
Posted on 03/13/2012 10:47:23 PM PDT by chaosagent
Sometime this afternoon my blog at www.ourrvadventures.wordpress.com was archived or disabled for violation of their Terms of Service.
This blog details my wife and my travels in our RV. I have no idea what I could have done to violate the Terms. I've had this blog for 3 years and never had a problem.
I contacted Workpress earlier this afternoon, but still haven't heard back.
Anyone have any ideas, or a better way to handle this, maybe the home phone number of the president of Wordpress?
Ann Althouse had a similar problem last year with her “blogspot” or whatever site it was blog.
I mean, she’s a law professor and very prestigious.
I don’t follow her closely enough to remember what the whole dealio was, but it was some screw up.
She might have left them anyway, but I’m really not sure how it all played out.
Seems like they would send you some kind of warning first.
Is it possible your site got hacked or something?
They didn’t contact me in any way.
It was working fine this morning. This afternoon it wasn’t.
Why would you use a server you dont control. It is so inexpensive to have your own domain parked on your own server. I think it cost me $6 a month. I upload. I control it 100%. Terms of service are I pay the $6 and thats it
I have been trying to sort thru who to use for a site I want to build, anyone you would recommend?
I’m logged in at my Wordpress blog . . . I can try and click on yours if you’ll tell me the name.
Mine seems OK.
They aren’t always real quick at getting back to free accounts . . . as is mine.
I mean, shes a law professor and very prestigious.
From the Wikipedia:
Althouse voted for Barack Obama for President in the 2008 election, and she remarked in January 2009: "he really is a solid, normal person who remained grounded in the middle of all this craziness. And I like to think that, now that he's President, with his steely nerve, his intelligence, and his groundedness, he'll do the job that must be done. The trickery is over."
Drink up, Ann, you stupid ...
GEF is correct. $6 a month for UNLIMITED domains. You make the rules.
If you were pimping it here, gunner probably “took care” of it. :-)
did you send bulk email?
“$6 a month for UNLIMITED domains. You make the rules.”
Yeh, WP also offers a domain for 24 yearly.....but using a domain vice a WP free blog is much more complicated and would require some geek expertise, right???
No Bulk Email. No profanity. No pornography.
Just a Wordpress with pictures of our travels around the country.
My Wordpress address is:
but most people get to it thru:
Repeated logins to my Wordpress have crashed IE.
Trying again . . .
OK. Your site loaded fine then, for me.
Can you access it now?
Looks and sounds like fun. Congrats.
Though . . . you might be particularly tuned to news and events in the next 2 weeks . . . and between now and the SElection.
I did most of it myself using WP. I have a little expertise with websites but WP makes it very easy.
Freepmail me for hosting companies. Unlimited domains and email.
Thanx for responding...appreciated...i may be getting close to attempting a domain after starting w/a WebTV in ‘97 when I had never gone yet to an atm machine, let alone send an email!

It’s working now.
Don’t know what happened. I never heard from anybody.
Guess it was just a mistake.
is a great place . . . for free or for varying rates for varying flexibilities etc.
Some well known folks use Wordpress.
However, they seem to occasionally be more buggy than I’d expect.
If you ever read her blog you’ll see how much her commentors torment her for having voted for Obama.
But I wasn’t trying to praise her, I was just telling the original poster that this well known, readily identifiable person also had some big blog problems last year.
She’s OK, althous, she did some good work in Madison during the recent protests against Walker, and she’s still at it.
As for voting for Obama, well, she was an idiot. Hopefully she’ll be one of many hundreds of thousands who repent that sin in the only way that matters - by voting for the Republican candidate for president this November, even if it is Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum, Newt Gingrich, a candidate to be named later, or a syphilitic Camel.
