Blog Ownership Transfer needed

    Dear Happiness-Engineer,

    The moderator of the German forum, zodiak1978, has recommended me to contact you directly:

    I am asking you to transfer the following blog to me:

    When you transfer the blog ownership to me, then you can enter my email address I have given here in this forum during registration.

    The blog name is my family name.
    I recommend WordPress to many people and I work as a tutor for them.
    It is very disturbing that an unknown person registered the blog with my name and put a hate sentence in the header of the blog.
    The blog was registered 5.5 years ago and it has never been used in any way as it can be seen at one glance.

    People who are recommended to by me type my family name on because they want to check my website. My reputation gets destroyed when they read such a sentence.

    Please, don’t delete the blog, but just transfer the ownership to me so that I can blog on that address.
    Take into consideration that the blog has never been used for 5,5 years and this is a special case because the blog contains my family name and I want to start my personal blog on that address.

    Thanks for your understanding and in advance I thank you for your kind cooperation.



    You did not specify a blog address or reason for posting when you created this topic.

    If you forgot to include a link to your blog, you can reply and include it below. It’ll help people to answer your question.

    This is an automated message.



    I did.
    Your automatic message is wrong.


    Actually, you didn’t. At least not in the space provided for such information which is what triggered the bot response.


    Moderator Emeritus doesn’t exist

    Did you mean to visit any of these blogs, instead of

    Have you tried to contact the owner of the blog?



    Please, read my original posting, then you know why I need to have the ownership of the blog

    It is not possible to contact the owner of the blog as the person is unknown and he never made use of the blog which is no wonder as the person’s intention was just to put a hate sentence in the header of the blog using my name as blog address.


    If somebody else owns it, you can’t have it no matter what.

    Even if you were to convince WordPress to delete it under some violation, you still could not gain ownership.



    The blog has only content in the header and that content is a violation against WP’s TOS.

    The reasons I have given for transfer of ownership are understandable and valid.

    But even if the blog ownership doesn’t get transfered to me, then WP should delete the 5.5 year old empty blog. The header content destroys my reputation because the blog’s name carries my name!


    Are you sure you are the only person in the entire world with that name?



    There is no expiration date on blogs unused or otherwise. No one is required to post to a blog they register and Staff don’t snatch back blogs here. If you can make contact on your own with the owner of an unused blog then there is a means of a consenting blog owner to transfer the blog to another username account. In the case that there is no contact information Staff will not breach the privacy policy and provide you with an email address.

    The blog has only content in the header and that content is a violation against WP’s TOS.

    Then go to the front of the blog and click “report as spam” in the dropdown. Then the ToS Ataff will examine the blog.

    You can register another blog with a similar name.

    Or you can register a domain vis a domain mapping upgrade and it will not matter what the underlying address is.



    Ataff = Staff



    Then please delete the empty blog, its is blatantly obvious that it is SPAM and meant to spread hate.

    Also delete this thread, or at least the blog’s address as it contains my name.

    Thanks for your understanding and cooperation.



    Support forum posts are forever – the staff leaves them up so others might learn from what was posted here

    Also ranting against a blog here will not have any effect on the blog you don’t like – you have been told how to deal with your alleged problem –



    You call that a blog? It is SPAM! It’s content consist of one sentence, the sentence is in the header and for 5.5 years no further content has been added. This SPAM site has my name in the address and therefore my reputation gets destroyed. I recommend WP to all people, I work for them as a tutor. The SPAM site violates WP’s TOS. I bet you didn’t take one look on the SPAM site or you didn’t try to use an online translator to understand the single sentence in the header.



    It’s you who is claiming the blog is a spam blog. I provided the instructions for you to report it to Staff. Stop expecting us Volunteers to take on your responsibility and act on the instructions I gave you.


    As previously asked, are you sure you are the only person in the entire world with that name?

    And it’s a pretty safe bet that no one knew anything about it until you brought it up, let alone associated it with you personally.



    It is interesting that volunteers answer, but the moderator doesn’t take any action even though the reasons I have brought up are very strong.

    @ timethief: Why do you pretend that I wouldn’t have followed your instructions? I did, but as a moderator can easily delete a SPAM blog and the request can be made here in this forum publicy, I have come up with that request.

    @ notawoodpecker: I have to grasp for oxygen when I read your question…
    In this thread you could read and you could also know it if you would have taken one single look at the SPAM bloh that the only content, the single hate sentence in the blog header, is in a language of my country and yes, I might be the only one with that name in this country, at least the only one with that name who is known to work with WordPress.

    Again: There is a blog with just one single sentence, the sentence is in the header of the blog, the blog is over 5.5 years old, the sentence destroys my reputation because the name of the blog carries my name and the sentence is full of hate. Is it that difficult to press on the delete button? I am 100% sure that the owner of that blog had the only intention to do online vandalism the same like sprayers do when they spray on house walls. Take a look at that SPAM site and you won’t come up with any other decision than to delete that blog.



    So it’s taken you 5.5 years to decide that this blog is destroying your reputation? Interesting. I couldn’t even find the blog in Google search.


    What I saw was not Spam.

    Spam is the use of electronic messaging systems to send unsolicited bulk messages, especially advertising, indiscriminately.

    And if it’s been there over 5 years, what’s the issue now?

    It is interesting that volunteers answer, but the moderator doesn’t take any action even though the reasons I have brought up are very strong.

    Please note that while I’m designated as a moderator, I am a fellow blogger just like you are. As such I do not have any more authority than you do in determining issues related to official policies.

    Do you realize that this is (for the most part) a peer to peer support forum?

    My fellow volunteer has given you very good advice above:
