    Is it illegal for someone who designed and set up your blog, to then set up a secret backdoor password and empower themselves as administrator and then shut your blog down? This has just happened to me. Kat Thoreson designed my blog- and I had allowed her to be an administrator- then the University she works for, Salish Kootenai College, apparently told her she couldn’t be associated with the blog- this is a couple of months ago- and she told me about it and I watched as she made me the sole administrator…. then two days ago I go to get into my blog and it says blog no longer available. I have months of archives- this is my music page- It contained alot of recordings, video, stories etc., and now I don’t know how to at least get access to my content.. HELP. Is it illegal or just extremely unethical… I really need to know.
