Terms of service problem

  1. I don't understand why my blog violates the terms of service. I post the books our reading group will be reading and provide links if they want to buy the book. What's wrong with that?
    Blog url: http://portlandreadinggroup.wordpress.com/

  2. If the links were or looked like an affiliate link that would have set off things - see below for guidance

    The suspension notice / Banner has a “click here to contact us” you need to contact the Terms of Service people with that link to ask them – that link should always work.

    You can also contact the staff here if the above link is not available: http://en.support.wordpress.com/suspended-blogs/ Should have a contact form at the bottom that should work all the time for everyone

    WordPress.COM policy is not to discuss TOS violations in the Forum and us unpaid volunteer helpers can’t return your site anyway. You might also review the following links for more information on what might have happened. Mistakes are sometimes made but you need to talk with the TOS people.

    and provide links if they want to buy the book.

    That may be why, depending on where the links go. They may see it as advertising.

    They won't discuss it here though. You'll have to contact them via the link in the notice you received.
