    “Remember, the internet isn’t America. People forget that.”

    I’m not helping but I think I like the way you said that. Are you from Asia?

    Haha, no, the Caribbean so I’m close enough to being in America, just no snow :p

    I did not allege that the inter-net was American. I do allege that the American law does apply to blogs hosted on wordpress and that all wordpress bloggers are contracting parties under the terms of the ToS. WordPress is owned by Automattic, an American corporation.

    But as you have stated above … “I have no reason to do this. You won’t really find anything like that on my blog.” This then indicates to me that you are just “monkeying around” as this is not a support question but a policy and legal question so, once again I steer you to our KeyMaster Mark. Please send in a feedback and ask your question where it counts.

    Yes, I will, and wasn’t <i>accusing</i> you of anything, it was just a general statement. I know better, just again, just saying things. Not attacking you or anything.

    I’m glad to hear that accusing attacking me wasn’t the case so I don’t have to put up a modlook tag.
    I’m also firmly convinced that you have been directed so many times to contact Mark now that you will not be so ill advised as to continue posting your “statements” to this thread.

    Just for reference the Terms of Service include a specific clause where WordPress bloggers agree to be bound by the laws of the United States on issues related to their blogs.

    That’s because the servers reside here in the US.

    I think some folks need to relax a bit though.

    Why is timethief so two sided? One minute cool, the other so grouchy? And that’s a good point, it’s like I’m on private property here, so I’m abiding by whatever the rules here are. We’ve established that I should contact support, and I have no problem doing so, the support is excellent. Am I not supposed to post in my thread now or something? If that’s the case, then I’ll stop. You take things way too seriously, timethief. And I’m not attacking you, this is constructive criticism! Laugh, hug someone, anything!

    Hear you loud and clear – btw – I’m no stranger to moderating forums, know exactly what I should and shouldn’t be doing. Don’t you just hate it when annoying new members tell you to do stuff? I sure do! /sarcasm

    Off topic it is!

    Why are you posting to a “resolved” thread and asking Volunteers? Only staff can make calls and then they only do so on wordpress.com blog contents.

    This link is not to a wordpress.com blog. That means that staff will now have to remove the link. Sheesh … if you need clarification with regard to what can or cannot be posted then you need to contact staff directly during support hours on weekdays.
