"Sorry, that site already exists."

    I have not used WordPress before. I went to a WordPress page captioned: Get started with WordPress.com by filling out this simple form:

    I skipped to the last field “Blog Address” and ahead of the already filled in portion, entered a name that I would like to use for my blog. I got the message: “Sorry, that site already exists.”

    Curious to see the existing site with the name I like, I went to: (the name I like).wordpress.com.

    That opened a WordPress page with the message: (the name I like).wordpress.com is no longer available. The author has deleted this blog.

    I am wondering; will (the name I like).wordpress.com be forever unavailable, even if the former blogger does not use it?

    I do not see how reusing a blog address might be any more problem than that posed by reusing a domain name that has expired and reused by another person.

    Thanks in advance for informative answers.

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