What if a blog has been deleted and I want it's name/url

  1. Let's say I want to register a new blog in WordPress.com and call it "someblogname".

    I start the new blog creation and it says someblogname.wordpress.com already exists.

    I open http://someblogname.wordpress.com to see what it's about and I'm told that
    "The authors have deleted this blog."
    "The content is no longer available."

    So why can't I have that name if the precedent owner dismissed it and erased all?
    Who can I ask for it?

    If it keeps on this way soon plenty of "decent" names will have that page...

    Thanks a lot for your support!

  2. Blog names are not recycled. The FAQ explains why.
