  2. That's a ToS violation that will get you blog suspended.

    Custom Design - Frequently Asked Questions

    May I remove credit links such as ‘Blog at’, theme, font, or toolbar links?
    All bloggers are required to maintain the credit links, even our VIP bloggers. Please do not hide or alter text or links for the footer credits or the toolbar. Modifying the style of the footer text (i.e. colors and font size) is fine as long as it’s still readable.

  4. We cannot pay extra to get it removed?

  5. No.

  6. Thank you! You just saved me 99 bucks a year.

  7. Not necessarily. sites are free; US$99/year is for upgrades.

    If you want to go to a WordPress standalone install, that can easily reach US$100 a year between domain name registration and web hosting. However, you will be responsible for all installations, all upgrades, all backups and all troubleshooting. WordPress has made this much easier over the years, but there is a lot more work involved and it is still more difficult if you are not technically inclined. More details in this Support Doc

    Best wishes to you regardless of which way you decide to go.

  8. PS - many WordPress.ORG themes (made by companies for WordPress.ORG installed blogs) also require the footer credits for the theme to be left intact
