    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).

    The blog I need help with is envirowatchrangitikei.wordpress.com.

    The Google Plus Button has been removed because Google shuts down Google Plus, https://www.theverge.com/2018/10/8/17951890/google-plus-shut-down-security-api-change-gmail-android. So this has nothing to do with censorship.

    Thank you for replying & clarifying Google Plus. I obviously missed that one.

    I take it from the rest of your comment I would receive no warning & would have to respond after the fact. You may be aware that there has been a shift in response to certain health topics elsewhere that were formerly approved of but no longer are. So any indication of a similar shift with WP would take the form of a shut down? (I have always been very careful not to violate content rules).

    @jcrv99 our forums staff and community cannot speak for our legal team. You’ll want to carefully read the TOS and User Guidelines (some of your questions and assumptions are addressed there.)

    You will note, though, that the form does allow you to contact the TOS team in case of a site suspension.
