    contact the owner – is there contact info on the blog? else leave a comment and maybe they will get the comment if it is set for moderate – WordPress.COM will not give out contact info



    how can I talk with a moderator ?



    What do you want to ask a moderator?

    they will give you the same contact info that I gave you on old blogs – WordPress.COM will not take a blog away from someone for not using it



    There is no expiration date on blogs unused or otherwise. If you can make contact on your own with the owner of an unused blog then there is a means of a consenting blog owner to transfer the blog to another username account.

    if you are not successful, you can register another blog with a similar name.

    Or you can register a domain via a domain mapping upgrade and it will not matter what the underlying address is.
