I’m not the only one, guys! Here are links to other bloggers who are going through the same thing. Their like and follow features have been permanently disabled by Automattic because they either don’t approve of their content or don’t approve of them as people. It’s just another attempt of Big Tech to bully and censor bloggers and users. Sadly, Automattic and WordPress have joined in the Big Tech tyranny.
No doubt many other bloggers will fall into this dragnet and I pray for them. They’re starting out slow, I believe. But this will only get worse as more and more bloggers will be added to the hit list in the coming years.
This may result in my blog being taken down. But I’m not concerned at the moment as I have all my posts back-up in Word docs on a flash drive. However, I think we should all be concerned with, or, at the very least, aware of these unprofessional and unethical practices.
I’ve got the WordPress Blues Again !!!

Why is this issue not resolved for so many bloggers, WordPress? Why are you inflicting this bizarre punishment? – YA NO ME PUEDEN GUSTAR LOS BLOGS DE NADIE EN WordPress TAMPOCO … 🙁 I can no longer like anyone’s blogs on WordPress either… 🙁 – This is STILL Happening to at least THREE of us!

hadn’t heard of this. Worrisome, indeed!
Thank you, Tricia. It’s pretty scary and I don’t have the faith and belief in WordPeess I once had.
Too bad they don’t believe in free speech. Any other blog websites that do?
I don’t know. But I will be looking and I’ll announce it when I find it.
This is all far too Orwellian for me. It’s getting very scary!
Yes it is, Jeanne. I though that WordPress was better than any other SM platform. Apparently, I was wrong.
WordPress is such a strange blog site with unintelligible “rules”!
Let me know if you hear of a site that doesn’t limit bloggers for no reason!
I sure will, Barbara. I’m looking for one now and I’ll make the announcement when I find it.
I’d appreciate finding a place to post my blogs that I feel safe and supported in.
WordPress pulled the rug out from under me for no justifiable reason.
Thank you, Barbara. I’m so sorry this happened to you and I’m still searching. I’m thinking that Substack might be a good alternative. But I’m still doing my research on it and have ordered a couple of books about Substack to read.
Thank you so much, Shanti! 💖
I’m really sorry to hear you’re going through this – and that others are being heavily censored as well. 🙁 It’s not right.
No it’s not. WordPress didn’t used to do these things. But now they think they’re too big to fail. They’ve grew quite arrogant in the last year or so.
This is really sad to hear, but not surprising either. Any other blogging websites out there that don’t censor?
I’m looking for one now, Colin. And I will make the announcement when I find it.
Sorry for the double post. Interesting, I did not receive a notification for your reply to me. And this post is not showing up in my “Conversations” tab in the “Reader” section. I don’t want to say you are definitely being shadow banned, because WordPress has been acting wonky lately for me, but it is very suspicious.
Many bloggers have told me the same thing, Colin. So, you’re right, it’s very suspicious. I think we can quietly draw our own conclusions on this. Don’t you?
I wonder if that is why my readership went down from 200 or so a day to like 50-80 overnight in May of last year, because I changed nothing except talking about God and Christianity exclusively. Someone said that couldn’t be, but I wonder about discrimination?… maybe, maybe not in my case.
That’s always possible, Tonya. People, especially those in Big Tech, are increasing in theor hatred of Christians and Christianity. But we knew that was coming because Jesus foretold this in the Bible. They hate us because they hated Him first.
Yes, you are right. I believe they dislike you because they feel called out for bullying and it messes with their system. They want to discourage us. But you keep up thr good work, it is so important, my friend.😃❤️
I sure will, Tonya. Although I’m taking a mini-hiatus right now. I’ll never quit.
I hadn’t heard of this. 🙁 Do your best, Cherie.
Thank you so much T.W.
