I’m getting really angry with WordPress.
So, for a brand new blog I’m planning, I’m thinking
of moving away from WordPress.
See my list of requirements below.
If you have any good recommendations,
please let me know.
Thanks a lot

No big brother censorship
Perhaps can monetize the blog
A block of one of my recent post literally just disappeared in regarding research that was done on Chinese censorship. Can someone give me an explanation for that?
I clicked on https://jonrappoport.wordpress.com as I do from time to time and saw this: ‘This blog has been archived or suspended in accordance with our Terms of Service.
For more information and to contact us please read this support document.’ I can’t recall reading anything particularly outrageous on that blog and surely he has a right to his opinions? This is the first time I have been directly confronted by platform censorship and I find it quite scary and utterly deplorable. Who elected you to do this?
This last weekend, WordPress took down the website of an investigative journalist named John Rappoport – without warning or reason. This is another of countless examples of censorship of free speech.
This is an age where we all have the ability to research things for ourselves and come to the realization of how things truly are. Why would WordPress attack such a noble endeavor if they are not covering for much larger crimes?
Taking away someones right to expression and freedom of thought is a tactic used to suppress alternative perspectives. Perspectives that many need, in order to understand the lies they have been told all their lives. We are at a pivotal time in our history and it is what we do now with our individual rights that will tell the story. It’s who and what we spoke out against and who we stand up for.
I stand for TRUE free speech! For if what people like John Rappoport say is not true, what have you to fear by allowing him to continue? WordPress – STOP giving into fear and to what you are told to do and operate with some integrity and honor. Removing this great man’s blog is disgraceful and an egregious over-reach of authority on a platform where you can (supposedly) speak your mind.
John Rappoport works for individual awareness. He seeks to inform people and to teach people how to think logically, for themselves; to question, seek and find answers. How is this worthy of such blatant Orwellian tactics of suppression?
Restore John Rappoport’s blog, immediately – for it was removed without cause, warning or explanation. This is called CENSORSHIP.
You’ve a choice to make, WordPress – and it’s a big one: Who and what do you stand for? Make your choice. I hope you side with the people and individual liberty.
Topic: WordPress and censorship
Has WordPress joined the censorship bandwagon? If so, shame on the open source community. Why has NoMoreFakeNews been taken down after 10 years of continuous presence on WordPress?
Topic: Jon Rappoport’s blog has been stopped by WordPress and this is absolutely unacceptable. What a total oxymoron – the title: WordPress and then they censor the work of a member, Jon Rapport, who has been here 10+ years. I don’t need anyone else deciding what I can read. Cease and desist, WordPress.
I am not asking a question, I am telling you to stop using censorship. But if you need a question mark, here’s a few of them, what is your problem??????
In their continued battle to shut down free speech, WordPress has just censored Jon Rappoport for stating truth.
One must suppose that further nazi or Orwellian surprises are in store for WordPress users.
Working with WordPress now seems to be like living in China – there’s someone looking over your shoulder every minute of every day, watching what you do and say, ready to “correct” any “misstatements” you might have made, and ready to kill your voice at a whim.
Is this really the kind of platform that ANYONE wants to continue using? Are you all willing to participate in evil simply because it’s convenient? If you are, then you should hang your heads in shame at your complete lack of character and morals.
What’s next? Is WordPress going to follow facebook and google and start banning doctors too? How about philosophers? How about religious leaders?
It’s out of hand, folks. And as long as you continue to participate in this horrible farce, it will continue.
Stop showing 451, instead show the content, this way the domain name will get listed in the official registry of blocked sites and automated censorship circumvention tools like  will pick it up for the benefit of its many users.
Hi, we have censorship in Russia.
E.g.  is censored and wordpress shows “ERROR 451: Unavailable for Legal Reasons”.
To circumvent censorship some people don’t want to spend money and use PAC-scripts with free proxy servers , with own-deployed proxy servers, with Tor as proxy or just Tor browser.
 is a somewhat popular solution in Russia and it proxies only sites that are in the registry of blocked sites. It doesn’t work for  because  is not in the registry. It’s not in the registry because you show error 451 for it so why to block it on the country level if the request of blocking it was already satisfied by you. I kindly ask you to stop using 451 for the benefit of automated censorship circumvention tools like .
Do you have any reasons to show 451 instead of content?
P.S. If  is not in the official registries (, , etc.) why do you show 451 for it?
With the current censoring on the web of some topics, I want to know if WP would censor any particular topics & if so do you give warning of such? I’ve heard of sites being taken down & would at least like to be given the option of removing the material first. (Just being prepared.) And if censored with the free site, would you censor the same from an upgraded site? (I’m thinking along the lines for instance of the current censorship of vaccine related material that is happening with Youtube, …the Google Plus button became ‘unavailable’ at my site https://envirowatchrangitikei.wordpress.com/ (not a problem really but just an indication of the censorship topic).
I post regularly on the WNEP-TV 16 blog/comment section. For the last several days an unknown reader (or fellow user) has been abusing the ‘report feature’, i.e. hitting the button enough to remove all comments that he/she doesn’t like. What can be done to stop this and prevent it in the future? This is censorship in its most basic form, and the user is preventing all comments that aren’t agreed with being removed. Is there anything that can be done to stop this?
Why did you remove this site? It had factual articles regarding the history & practices of Islam. Censorship?
I have already asked but I have yet to receive a response? Even members of my family appear to be having a problem connecting to my Blog. Am I being blocked by WordPress for some reason? I frequently receive ‘wordpress suddenly closed the connection’ reports when I try to connect. I have been told by readers that they frequently find it impossible to connect and when they do it is impossible to navigate around my site. My followers on ‘twitter’ have reported the same problem. If there is a problem with my content please let me know as there is little point in persisting if I am now unwelcome on WordPress.
