Guilty Until Proven Innocent
It was the first day of 2013, and I was having a relaxing day. The calm before the “going-back-to-work” day on Wednesday January 2nd, 2013. Sometimes in the afternoon, I was about to make a post on my personal blog, and I was greeted with a message.
iveryam.wordpress.com is no longer available.
I was so confused.I questioned myself of what I had possibly done that caused the blog suspended. I reached out to WordPress.com support and so far I had not heard from them Granted it was only 6 hours prior to this post. Since it was a New Year’s Day, there might only be minimal support staff manning the station, I’m giving them the benefit of the doubt. In the meantime, I was presumed guilty until proven innocent.
Back in August 2009, 37prime.wordpress.com was erroneously suspended for TOS violation. It took about 24 hours for WordPress.com staff to reinstate the blog.
Sunday August 16 2009, 37prime.wordpress.com was taken offline. This blog was apparently shutdown for Terms Of Service (TOS) violation. This blog was gone for about 24 hours, and thanks to Mark everything was straightened out. Mark assured me that there was some kind glitch that took this blog down.
I am not aware of anything I did that violate WordPress.com TOS. There is no intent and there are no pattern that I was willfully violate WordPress.com TOS.
What an irony, since I’ve gotten a thank you email from Matt Mullenweg for helping cleaning up spam on WordPress.com on December 31st, 2012. Hours later, iveryam.wordpress.com was suspended.
