Greetings fellow bloggers! As you know, I have been blocked from engaging with other bloggers for about six months now. Several times since, I have tried to politely negotiate with the overlords of Automattic and WordPress to no avail. I even asked if this was temporary and still got no answer until now.
Before I go on, know that I’m deeply sorry this has happened and that I would like, follow, and engage with your posts if I could. It’s getting to the point that sometimes, I can post comments, but sometimes I’m unable to. And I’m truly sorry for that.
Today, after my last attempt to negotiate with Automattic, I was informed that the block was permanent, as you have read above. They finally gave me my answer. And I think they gave it to me out of emotion because from the tone of this email. I think they were quite pissed that I wouldn’t shut up about it. However, I had right to know how long they intended to restrict this blog.
Also, they threatened to block me from support if I contacted them again. They stated that they did not want to hear from me again, for anything.
Therefore, on March 7, of next year, I will either move to another blog platform, have my own domain and website set up, or go back to the free version of WP. I refuse to pay 308.00 to these people, just to be restricted. When I pay for a platform, I want my money’s worth and I expect to get it.
I do believe that, back in May, though unintentionally, I angered someone at WordPress. Maybe they didn’t like a blog post, maybe they didn’t like the fact that I was giving advice on bullying because people who give advice to targets of bullying have been attacked online for the past year or two. Certain groups do not like the fact that we’re empowering targets.
Nevertheless, I let them know that I would not be bullied by them any longer and basically told them that they could take this platform and shove it. This may get me de-platformed, but at this juncture, I could care less. I only hope that none of you get caught in their line of fire, as the last six months have been discouraging to say the least.
Know that I love you all and that if they decide to get butt-hurt over my response to them and retaliate, they will only show their true colors and how little they value their paying customers. Because if they can restrict me, they can also do the same to any one of you.
However, what they fail to realize is that without us, there wouldn’t be an Automattic or a WorPress. They would be up a creek.
And if they remove this site, I will miss you all. But I will set up another site somewhere else. So, this is not goodbye.
With love always,

Unbelievable! So sorry to read this.
Thank you, Sheree. 💖 But I’m not complaining, I’m looking for solutions. Lots of love, sweetie!
This is so wrong on many levels – I look forward to following you where ever you go!!
Thank you so much, Valerie! 💖 I look forward to my new website and seeing you on it. I don’t know when I’ll have it up and running. Lots of things have happened during this past six months that prevented the website from happening but it’ll materialize eventually.
You go girl!!!💜💜
Thank you so much, Susan! 💖
“Happiness Engineers”?!?!? Good heavens, does Twitter own that platform or something?!? I’d move, too!
🤣😂🤣 It seems that way, don’t it, Jeanne? I’m starting to hope Elon buys WordPress out next!
Cherie, I’m still trying to ‘wrap my head’ around the fact that a ‘happiness engineer’ thinks you liking something is unsuitable! Don’t they realize that you liking a post makes the writer happy OR is that title ‘upside-down’ and they really wish to disperse the opposite?!?
I don’t know, Jeanne. And it isn’t the happiness engineers. It goes much higher. One happiness engineer actually restored my ability to like and follow. But it only lasted a few hours until they reversed it and took it all away again. I then got an email saying that the engineer reversed it by mistake and when they caught it, they ‘corrected’ it again. So, it goes much higher than the happiness engineers. The bosses are involved.
They nuked my WP site off the internet too, with no explanation given and any attempt to request a reason refused, though I guess it was because I went against the accepted narrative on COVID and Ukraine etc. and of course, Kill Gates and co. own the internet, which is really a military spying system set up like a bugged speakeasy in so many ways, they have always intended to withdraw it when they have everyone figured out as it will then have done its job.
They also told me I could download my articles from around 11 years work before they deleted all my work, with a 2 week deadline to complete that, but they made that effectively impossible with unfathomable software, in fact they had already sneakily deleted several year’s worth of work even after I took up paying for my site, a nasty thing to do, and then they said I could download what remained, it took several hours and they only sent me less than 20 articles in all that time, and every one of them failed to open up, in other words, they just deleted all my work. Also, companies that they referred me to operate similar cancellation rules and they stall and stall so that the 2 weeks they give you to download and transfer are really totally useless, they make sure you lose all your wor, so you need to back it all up manually now.
Your site covers an interesting subject that is very seldom addressed at all by others, and bullying is a really massive thing, but it would be good to see other subjects covered by you as well as you possess a lot of talent.
Few realize just how the present political system itself is a communist system of gaslighting, bullying, enslavement with extreme malice, fake medicine, toxic food, toxic drinking and bathing water, toxic religion, toxic education, toxic law and order, enforced poverty and illness, the whole thing is a sheer weapon inflicted upon us by a toxic lower dimensional spiritually void soul group that does not belong in this dimension.
And of course, that lower dimensional soul group, not all of whom dwell here as Jews, (people like Pol Pot, Mao Tse Tung, Nelson Mandela) lie to anyone else who might listen to those who understand what the criminal soul group really are, and make out that it is really those who understand what the terrorist criminal soul group are up to are the real bullies themselves.
Substack is reasonable, and they do a free plan for very basic blog plans, which I use myself, through I may pay for something a bit fancier a bit later on once I am sure they will not delete me. but I have had a little site there for the last couple of weeks or so and it has not been deleted yet and they have let me speak my mind. Do not bother wasting your time thinking about Blue Yonder, Dreamhost and other companies recommended to move to by WP, they will tie your head in knots, I asked for my money back from Dreamhost when they did not deliver, and got a full refund minus currency conversion fees.
With best regards, and all good wishes,
Holy crap, Mothman! I’m so sorry you had to endure such buffoonery from these tyrants! 😲😲😲 It’s a darn good thing I have saved all my work in word documents before posting them on here! I don’t what I would do if I lost it all. I can only imagine how you felt! Bless you, Mothman! And I wish you lots of success with your Substack blog!
Wow. Customer service at its finest. I host my whole website at GoDaddy and use the WP blogging software independently. I connect to the WP community and the WP Reader via the Jetpack plugin. Not sure how much the overlords control that way. There are other solutions as well. And other platforms. That’s really backwards and it’s a shame you have to go through all this. Maybe you poked a bully king in the eye without realizing it.
Thank you so much, Herb! And wow! You’re smart to do so! I may follow your lead. And I totally agree with your last statement. In fact, I’m willing to bet my right arm that’s EXACTLY what it is! 💯👍🎯
What a bunch of butthurt crybullies! 😒
It looks like they’re being the bullies. Whatever you decide, keep me posted as I don’t want to miss any of your postings.
Thank you so much, Michael! I sure will! 👍
I left WordPress – They are incredible rude and yes, they are bullies.
Wow! What did you do to restore your blog? Because you have a great blog! I just can’t like or follow unless I followed you before all this mess.
Once again, WP’s double standard comes into play. Turning a blind eye to actual spammers, while blocking real people. Bravo…
Absolutely, Monch! And I thought they were the better than Facebook, Twitter, and those other crappy spam-bot loaded sites. Boy, was I wrong. Heck! I exactly talked them up in an earlier post. These people are ass-backwards. Thank you so much for your support, Monch! It really means a lot! 💖
Good for you… now maybe I need to keep an eye out for other options (I’m not a paid subscriber, but I do have another site on WordPress that I pay for a domain name).
Thank you so much, Greg! I pray you’re spared from this kind of tomfoolery!
I’m so sorry this is happening Cherie! Very sad 😞
Thank you, Krista. It’s not the end, I’m just working on taking a different path. May God richly bless you! 💖
I’m in shock that they treated you this way. This goes beyond coldness and lack of care – it’s like they actually wanted to be cruel to a user of their site? I’m sorry this has happened and this is definitely bullying – you did nothing wrong and were only sharing your thoughts and empowering others. I hope to still keep up with your blog wherever you decide to go next!
Thank you so much, Sara. If possible, I’ll find a way to redirect you to the new site! I’m pleasantly overwhelmed by the support from so many people! Bless you, sweetie! 💖💖💖
I’m sorry WP is acting so badly towards you. If you move your blog, I hope I can keep reminding myself to check it. Blogs outside of the reader I tend to forget at times. Not because I don’t care but well, adhd jumping around.
Too bad you won’t be able to use your paid account as you should be able to. Keeping fingers crossed you may find something that suits you better! And I’ll try to follow in the best ways I can. 😊
Thank you so much, Cynni! 💖 I’m so thankful for the overwhelming support I’ve gotten on here and I look forward to seeing you when I get my new platform.
Omg this is bad!! Stay strong.
Thank you so much, Nahal. 💖 I sure will!
This is so weird and absolutely nonsensical. They should atleast clarify the reasons for blocking a blog. Your blog is informative and has supported me a lot in understanding bullying. I will really miss you on this platform. Do inform us of your new blog.
Thank you so much, Ranjana. This means a lot, sweetie. 💖🌺 Sadly, they won’t. Remember they are bullies and lack of transparency is just another tool bullies use to maintain power. But they have no power over me because I’m standing up to them with my feet- putting my walking shoes on. I really believe they have done this to others before me. Only those people are either not speaking out, or they’re being silenced. I’m not afraid because their are other avenues. Again, thank you so much for your support! I couldn’t be more grateful! 😊🤗💖
Hai tutta la mia solidarietà di blogger! Ciao,a presto!🖐️🤗🍀☘️
Thank you so much, Mario! This means more than you know! 💖🤗
Great customer service by WordPress. I didn’t know they could be this rude. Am so sorry Cherie. You can buy a domain from a hosting company (elsewhere) and still blog here on WordPress. You just have to choose the self-hosted site option. Nonetheless, where you go, I shall go 👍
Thank you so much, Zeal. And yes. I’m definitely going to go that route. 💯👍
This is beyond words how they are treating you at every turn! 🙁 I’m so sorry… I’ve been with the free version of WP for 10 years now, and have had no ill experiences. Hope it stays that way.
I will follow you wherever you decide to continue blogging 🙂 Take Care and stay in touch!
Thank you so much, Celt. And you can be sure that I’ll definitely stay in touch. I’ll buy a domain on another platform and fix it to where I still show up in Reader. Another blogger informed me that he did the same thing. So, it’s doable.
Very strange situation. Just unbelievable.
Please let us know about your decision and where you move. I will follow you.
Thank you so much, Angela. You don’t know how much I appreciate it. And I’ll definitely put an announcement on the blog before I move. Also, there might be a way to redirect you to the new site. 💖
WOW!!!!! I am sorry this has happened to you. I HATE censorship. I admire your spunk though. Keep fighting for your rights and keep fighting the good fight.
Thank you so much, Jeanne. It’s friends like you that give me hope and keep me pressing on, sweetie! Elon took over Twitter. So, maybe he’ll take over WordPress at some point! Let’s hope and pray! 😊💖🙏
That’s some strange news. Let us know where we can find your new blog once you get that set up.
Thank you so much, Vanya! I sure will! 💖
My goodness, I had no idea! I just use the free WordPress service and have posted some stuff that most globalists/elite/far-left DemonicRats would despise and censure on most platforms, and haven’t – to my knowledge at least – been throttled or shadow-banned or had features disabled. So far. Perhaps the free service is worth the trouble and the ads, if it means they’ll leave you alone.
Thank you so much, Robin. Honestly, I don’t think it’s political- it could be, but I don’t think so. I think I really PO’ed somebody at Automattic and they’re not letting go. But I’m letting them go March the 6th.
So sorry to hear you are moving, but let us ALL know when and where you are finally going to set up your next new blog! Thanks for such an amazing blog! Greg
You’re most welcome, Greg. And thank you so much for your kindness and friendship. I plan to automatically redirect all of you over to the new blog. But I will let you know when the time draws near.
