Site Suspended, Unsure Why
I’m pretty confused. My site, http://brennanmackseo.wordpress.com/, started loading as a blank white page. I came here to post about it on the forums, but it said my site was suspended. After trying everything I could think of, I actually had to make a new wordpress.com account using a new email address, just to be able to post this out of sheer confusion.
My site had been flagged for suspension last year (still not sure why), but I sent a message to support who looked into it with this reply,
Your site was flagged by our automated anti-spam controls. I have reviewed your site and have removed the suspension notice. We are very sorry for that happening and the inconvenience it caused you.
Nothing’s really changed on the site. I make informational posts about search engine optimization and internet marketing. Why the heck has my account been suspended?

It’s weird, when I do a google search for your site, it seems they don’t even have a cached version.
Why the heck has my account been suspended?
I make informational posts about search engine optimization and internet marketing.
Looks like you answered your own question.
Not necessarily. Get Rich Quick is a problem. Regular posts about normal business practices aren’t outlawed.
Thanks raincoaster, I’ll do that. It has been a bit of time since I’ve posted to the site, but I’d imagine that Google should still have it cached. Go figure.
Ummm, am I going crazy or what? The contact page you sent me to just makes another forum post. The only way to DIRECTLY contact them is by reporting a security issue, and as upset as I am with all of this, it’s not a security issue as far as I can tell.
Oh god they told us that link would go directly to them. Fine.
Email support at wordpress dot com. That will always work, though it’s not necessarily fast.
And to clarify, my posts aren’t of the “get rich quick” variety. Just informational posts about how search engine optimization can benefit local businesses, how to go about procuring SEO services, and how to stay away from scam SEO tactics (i.e. how to stay away from the get rich quick guys).
Haha, it’s an adventure.

Should have a contact form at the bottom that should work all the time for everyone
WordPress.COM policy is not to discuss TOS violations in the Forum and we unpaid volunteers can’t make any determination about such issues so I’ll close this thread.
