Ok guys, let me get that straight! ~ JusJuJan 2015 ~ Day 15

This morning I saw a post by Linda G. Hill saying that HarsH ReaLiTy is closing down. I did not really get why WordPress has decided to do so but I shared the post anyway because Jason Cushman is a creative and very helpful guy. He might not always use a language that suits everybody but neither does Charlie Hebdo and they are hailed as the defender of freedom of speech.

No, the problem is not freedom of speech. The problem is how many followers he has and how many blogs he follows! DUH?!

I always loved WordPress for its exceptional way of connecting bloggers with each other. To flag a guy, who has lots of followers and follows a lot just sounds like contradicting themselves.

It looks like me standing up for him might mean my blogs will be closed as well. Something WordPress makes very hard when you want to do it yourself. DUH?!

So let me get that straight guys: You give exceptional possibilities to connect with other bloggers and to follow and like but when someone uses it successfully you close them down?

    1. I’ve already written to WordPress to tell them that OM is no spammer but will have a look at your comment as well. Take care and thanks for stopping by

      1. I like the “Je Suis Opininated Man”. Am wondering anyway if him closing down has more to do with how and what he writes rather than following to many blogs.

  2. it must have worked, writing them as he is still around? How can you follow too many blogs? Cant you follow as many as you want? weird if you ask me that wp would try to close you down for that!

    1. Yes, he fought and they let him back in and now his blog is self-hosted. I totally agree: how can you follow too many blogs? Plus he advertised for them and I am sure he brought tons of people to WP. But who knows how the powers that are WP work ๐Ÿ˜š๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ
