    It is not offensive, it is libel. I’m an attorney, and it’s not an issue of censorship. It’s an issue of tortious interference. I’m a celebrity in my field, and this is coming up in google searches.

    Here is my original post …then just when it looked like I was going to get some help from a nice person who responded in swooped a moderator to close down the topic…why? I will let you know when the topic had been answered and is all tapped out please don’t create more work for me when if WordPress were following their own T and C’s I wouldn’t have to do any extra work at all. Here it is:

    The blog address once again is http://www.therightwingextremist.wordpress.com it’s my blog …I own it and have owned it for approximately 10 years before you decided it no longer fit with your political viewpoints and agenda so you censored it as though you have some moral imperative to decide what people should and should not be able to read because they are all too simple and stupid to decide for themselves…thank you for filtering out all of the content you don’t like for us.

    In everyone of your answers to all of the people you did the same thing to who are wondering where their 10 years of work byproduct went you tell us that only the terms and conditions people can discuss that with people and that we aren’t allowed to discuss your terms and conditions publicly…why? why can’t we discuss the terms and conditions you want everyone to abide by? Don’t you think you owe people some explanation before you delete or suspend 10 years (or even 1 yr or 1 week) of their work ? It’s your terms and conditions that seem to be ever changing ….sort of like trying to hit a moving target. I think that we should have a long and loud discussion about the censorship by wordpress and facebook and twitter and google and all of the rest of you who think that you should be the arbiters of what people can read and what they can’t. You are on the wrong side of this issue and on the wrong side of history and I am actively encouraging congress to come down on all of you and exempt you from the protections the law currently provides you because there is a large and growing body of people who are fed up.

    For the record this blog started back in 2008 and was owned by me and my girlfriend did most of the blogging that name back then was “A Girl Who Know’s her own Mind” and she was ‘cameronisright’ and the email address was a mail.ru address or a gmail address for her. Then it became “The Right Wing Extremist”a couple or more years later. One of the names I used was “caretaker” and you can see that my name appears on this blog as the owner all over it. I don’t remember which address I used during this time but I can show you screenshots with my name on them from my blog. (roger alvey) when you look up the url you will get an email address thats associated with the account and if you tell me the first 2 letters I will give you the rest of it. The also nuked another blog of mine called “TheCarGuyz.wordpress.com” that I would also like to transfer away from the censors. The remarkable thing is that I hadn’t posted to either blog for probably at least a year and for 10 years the content was just fine …until it wasn’t which tells me that you people need to get your shit together because it shouldn’t take 4 emails to get a response. AND I would like to discuss the terms and conditions you impose on the conservatives in the crowd but no one else …why? Now leave this thread and post alone until I get an answer to where are my blogs and how do i get them away from you

    Why do you ask me this question from a “no reply email” address when you know that it was given to you on the form i sent you why?

    Is there any way to contact WordPress about the banning of a blog (not mine but one I liked to read) which in my view was not in any way transgressive and yet was taken down by the people at WordPress? I am seeing more and more of this kind of censorship for things that are really worthy topics of conversation. Yet, other blogs which contain violence and misogyny are allowed to remain intact and no one at WordPress seems to mind. Anyone have any ideas about the logic of this and how to contact someone at WordPress about this?

    Topic: Automattic Censorship

    in forum Support

    buelahman
    Member

    It has come to my attention that Automattic has begun infringing upon blog owner’s First Amendment by joining other media hosts in dismantling certain blogs it deems inappropriate or some other excuse to delete them.
    This flies in the face of Automattic’s own published defense of our American rights.

    The three blogs I have frequented that now mysteriously disappeared are American Everyman (https://americaneveryman.com/), Fellowship of the Minds (https://fellowshipoftheminds.com/) and Jay’s Analysis (https://jaysanalysis.com/).

    I have never seen a single instance of these blogs violating Automattic’s terms of service (much less them all doing so simultaneously), but they do write about uncomfortable topics to certain groups of people that don’t want that information published.

    Automattic is helping the forces of evil squash those that speak up in the fight against evil.

    It is unacceptable.

    Thank you for your reply.

    I’ve invested quite a bit of time in WordPress blog articles, but all of these articles’ html codes are copied in full on my hard-drive, so putting them up on a new site will not be difficult.

    Your answer is much appreciated but essentially means that censorship of sites is public but the reasons for censorship are private — and that’s not good enough.

    So I will be transferring my blogs to other platforms and then deleting all of my WordPress accounts.

    Political censorship is 100% unacceptable, and WordPress should be ashamed, although I’m sure it’s very proud of its Communist-style tactics to silence truth-speakers.

    Have a censorship-free day!

    Sincerely,

    Good day,
    Wordpress has deleted the site thegovernmentrag.wordpress.com. Why has WordPress decided to join the inevitable failure of Communist-style censorship in the U.S.?

    Hi there, WordPress.com has a strong view against censorship: https://en.support.wordpress.com/bypassing-internet-restrictions/

    Nevertheless, due to your valid concerns about your site which us Volunteers don’t have much information on, I’ve tagged WordPress.com staff to help you with this issue. You’ll likely receive a response within a few hours from a staff member: https://en.support.wordpress.com/getting-help-in-the-forums/#how-do-i-get-a-moderatorstaff-reply-for-my-question

    Hope this gets resolved soon. :)

    WordPress is big. The war-making State would not ignore it. It will therefore either be a big ally of the State or a crippled enemy. So far, it looks ‘healthy’ to me.

    I am prompted to ask my question for the following reason. Censorship is now the norm. And it’s awful. And it’s evil and undemocratic. Two, I find it strange that when I expect much business (as in busy, not commerce) on my site, it’s suddenly all but dead.

    Thanks in advance for any useful info.

    Why Evolution Is True (WordPress webpage: https://whyevolutionistrue.wordpress.com) has never published anything offensive toward Muslims. There are, however, young girls in Pakistan who are shot for reading websites like Why Evolution is True. Censorship motivated by cultural relativistic policies undermines human decency. Maybe you could change the blocked status of WEIT?

    Topic: Breast Cancer

    in forum Support

    philipracuel
    Member

    I cannot believe WordPress suspended my account for talking about freaking Breast Cancer Awareness at Petco Park on Mother’s Day. Breast is not a dirty word. Talking about women who suffered through breast cancer is not pornography. It is a reality every woman could possibly face. Please restore my blog- this is ridiculous and borders on censorship.

    Lots of new video services – as an alternative to Google’s censorship. Full30.com is only 1 such. Tried your ‘shortcode’ method of ‘[embed]URL[/embed] but only got the link to the video. Any chance there is another option? (Full30.com’s ’embed’ option seems to be a pretty typical iFrame (which I know is verbotten) but I guess I expected it to work with the Embed shortcode.

    Probably not. China blocks WordPress.com hosted blogs and the fact the blog is on a domain matters not.

    If you’re behind some internet censorship service like the Great Firewall of China and you’re opening such URL via HTTPS, then all that the firewall can detect is that you are addressing wordpress.com – without more precise details such as specific blog name.
    You can register any http://NAME_OF_BLOG.wordpress.com and then enable https:// http://en.support.wordpress.com/https/#enabling-https

    “The latest trick, carried out by activists at Great Firewall monitoring site Greatfire.org, is to upload mirrored copies of blocked sites to cloud hosting services, challenging the Great Firewall operators to block major brands like Amazon and Google cloud hosting, or allow freer access to banned material. “ http://nakedsecurity.sophos.com/2013/11/25/great-firewall-of-china-bypassed-by-cloud-mirrors/

    As a workaround some have been using a VPN or proxy to access WordPress.com blogs. The following links provide some options:
    https://www.intl-alliance.com/store/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=1_119
    https://www.torproject.org/
    Some users have had luck simply by using Opera Turbo. http://www.opera.com/browser/turbo/

    I had a look at AMP and didn’t like what I saw. Specifically, I saw the word ‘Google’ (doing censorship) together with the word ‘cache’. I get the ad. My blog loads faster etc.. I don’t care.

    A website I found a few minutes ago gave me the usually geekish (unfriendly, too limited) guide on how to remove AMP. I want a global setting. I see that I can remove AMP from each post. I have just over 700 on my blog. The website I found directed me to my settings and told me to find installed plugins. I see no such tab or area. Maybe it’s just me. Could someone clue me in here? Thanks

    Hi, do I really have to pay for a business plan just to use WP as a backup for my tumblr blog?
    I only want to use the plug in ‘tumblr importer’. This isn’t a business, I’m not sure I’ll even use WP at all. I just want to backup my 4.5 years of posts before tumble goes full-on CENSORSHIP CRAZY and starts deleting all conservative blogs and anyone who even so much as ‘likes’ or ‘reblogs’ any conservative, pro-america, pro-trump posts.

    Today the reader is not working and I can’t see any new content in the feed even though the websites I follow sent email updates of new articles.

    I get an annoying pop-up that says, “that site has not posted anything recently”, suggesting I follow others.

    Readers that follow my blog told me they cannot view my website posts in their WP reader either.

    Is this some new form of censorship?

    #3029883

    The issue is solved!!!!!

    After trying everything without success I was about to give up on wordpress and remake my blog on another site but then I finally realised what it was.
    It was censorship. I found out Vietnam actually censors certain sites and wordpress seems to be one of them. I added the dotVPN chrome extension and boom…problem solved!!! Hopefully it won’t happen again.
    anyway , thanks for all the help.

    Topic: wp lying to members

    in forum Support

    barkmanpark
    Member

    wp lied once already, saying they deleted my website
    because it was never updated. BIG FAT LIE.

    wp deleted my website again, yet refuses to respond.
    Many hours now.

    This is a horrible disservice to all wp members and users.
    Even tweets to MATT go unreturned.
    Why is wp suddenly so MEAN, prejudiced, and hurtful to members?

    ps, they also deleted my forum thread from before
    so no one else could read it or add to it. Censorship? Really?

    wp needs to stop lying to members, and needs to restore my
    news website immediately. (I was in process of renovations when
    they deleted my site, but refuse to say why, or respond for HOURS!)

    Please SHOUT OUT about this abuse!

    You want to close threads about suspended sites because you dont want readers to know about WordPress CENSORSHIP.

    I have responded with the link numerous time for MONTHS and NO RESPONSE!!

    The blog was active for 1 1/2 YEARS before suspension,.obviously no violation. This is blatant CENSORSHIP.

    We have FRER SPEECH IN AMERICA.

    The fact that there was no warning and no response detailing the alleged violation supports this is CENSORSHIP.

    I need another method of contact for reinstatement.. The blog has been suspended for months!!
