    Hello I’d like to contact the (Italian) owner of http://snaporaz.wordpress.com/ and e-mail him a request … but the site does’nt offer a contact option. Moreover, it seems to be inactive, yet it still exists. Why? Because Posterous is closing, I’d like to migratehttp://snaporaz.posterous.com/ to that precise WordPress url … if it were free. On the forums I only found https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/contact-blog-owner?replies=5 but that topic hasn’t been answered by WordPress officials, only by users. Moreover the topic has been closed.

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

    I realise the topic isn’t obvious because of the privacy of owners, but I’m merely wondering whether WP mediates in those matters, if only to avoid hosting a score of ghost blogs.

    The blog I need help with is snaporaz … but in the meantime I’ve claimed zaropans …

    No, WP does not mediate. They basically don’t act without a court order. I’d actually suggest a custom domain like snaporaz.com instead. I generally don’t advocate paid upgrades, but this one is worth the $18 a year for domain and mapping, BY FAR.

    Apart from all that I found that the contact blog owner topic on this forum (see above) didn’t provide satisfactory information. I’m sorry to say I didn’t find any other relevant info, but if there’s a deeplink to a more precise policy, I’d like to learn it. Thank you each & all …

    Posterous had many disadvantages, though not initially, but somehow, inside Posterous, once logged in, one was always able to contact that other person. Pros & cons to that … and privacy is king. OK, I’ll work around the problem.
