Singled out by the WP ‘Blog Bot’ Police

Singled out by the WP 'Blog Bot' Police

As a returning blogger to WP, I was excited to experiment with some of the new features and blog designs provided here.

But my excitement soon turned to angst when half (2 of 4) of my new blog creations were suddenly singled out, shut down as “spam” by the WP automated web bot, the official mechanical censor of this domain.

Needless to say, the action was an unintended reaction of the mechanical ne’er-do-well and an official apology has been received, even though one of the two sites remains down at this writing.

I can fully appreciate the efforts of blog publishers like WP to manage their domains as they try to prevent abuse by bloggers with dangerous or abusive intents. But the mechanized nature of  this action causes me to ask why no human being reviewed and intervened when the machine made an obvious error?

WP admitted the error even though they are slow to correct the situation. I am waiting for a response and for restoration of of the blog, xactly Rated.

Anyone else with a similar WP issue?

  1. of course like your website but you have to check the spelling on quite a few of your posts.
    A number of them are rife with spelling issues and I find it very
    bothersome to tell the truth on the other hand I will
    certainly come again again.

    1. Thanks for the well-intended advice. Some of my compositions are too hastily done from a mobile or tablet device where my typing skills are challenged, at best. I am sure I am not alone with that experience.

  2. Heya just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you know a few of the pictures aren’t loading correctly. I’m not sure why but I think its a linking
    issue. I’ve tried it in two different browsers and both show the same results.

    1. Apparently, my browser (Google Chrome on a Mac) is not showing what you are reporting. All images show on screen as posted on my 4 different devices: (1) My iMac,(2) my Macbook, (3)nmy iPod, and (4) my Nexus7 Android tablet. Not sure what I can do about the issue you report and you are the first to report such a problem. If others see the same issue, or know about a remedy let me know.

  3. Thanks for your personal marvelous posting! I actually enjoyed reading
    it, you can be a great author.I will ensure that I bookmark your blog and will come back at some point.

    I want to encourage you to definitely continue your great job, have a nice day!
