Oh I see - so because I have a footer at the bottom of each page after my name that includes a link to my website, that is considered to be a violation of TOS? Even though I'm not directly selling anything in the posts themselves? Even though in your profile you are allowed to add your website address?
Thanks for the clarification. As I have maintained, I was using this site for training purposes for a network marketing company. I coach people on how to market themselves. I can see that my site is not really suited for what I am trying to accomplish and this has been an extremely important learning for me that I will be sure to share with my team of over 2,000 members and growing. I was going to encourage everyone on my team to start using wordpress.com for their personal team blog sites, so I'm glad I've been the guinea pig here and see that wordpress doesn't want our participation.
I will just have to move my site over to wordpress.org and rebuild and that's where I should have started to begin with. My biggest issue right now is that I have 2 domain names locked up in wordpress.com that I really need.
I am trying to undersand legally how wordpress can act as a registrar and put my name in whois as the owner of the domain, and not release the domains to me given the situation.
Also, the number that wordpress has for Automattic is bogus.. I've called a few times to the number provided for technical support regarding domains in the domain control panel and I keep being told that it is not the right number. They kept telling me they service different companies for domain registration, but wouldn't tell me what company they are. And, they said they couldn't help me understand why I don't have domain mapping set up in the control panel. It would be great if wordpress would give people looking to resolve domain issues, including registration, etc. an accurate tech support number.
