@wigwam2theorem-Again, make your opinion known by contacting WordPress.COM Support directly from the link in your Dashboard. The forum volunteers have no control or input about this.
@mrmxyztplk- On a private blog here on WordPress.com, the only person who decides who gets mailed an invite to join the blog is the blog owner. As such, posting in a Support forum about wanting to join what was then perceived to be a private blog was pointless. The information given by rain and vivian in that thread was factual, even if it wasn't well-received. As sulz just said (glad I refreshed), if this comes off as being brusque...(shrug).
@arifsali-On a day-to-day basis, the support forum is user-to-user mostly. Staff and Mods come through regularly and we all try to keep this a friendly place. While we can control how we say things, we can't control how they're perceived by others. This is the great problem with no visual cues in the written word.
