New blog home message

Following a silent suspension of my blog here at WP, I’ve decided to move my blog to Blogger. I was lucky to have checked this blog and saw that it had been suspended. I contacted WP as instructed and after a day they restored my blog and sent me this message:

Hi there,

Your site was flagged by our automated anti-spam controls. We have reviewed your site and removed the suspension notice.

Please be sure to clear your browser’s cache and restart the browser (if necessary).

I’m sorry for the error and any inconvenience it may have caused.

This was the first and only email I received from them. Obviously, this is inadequate. If they can automatically suspend your blog, they can automatically email the site admin letting them know. It would be better if they would just email you to let you know that there is a problem to be addressed. Or, they could investigate manually before suspending blogs.

Regardless, I can’t keep watch on this blog all the time and make sure it hasn’t been suspended, especially while travelling. There’s no telling if/when this will happen again. (If you’re not watching over your blog and they suspend it, they will eventually shut it down completely, though I’m not sure how long they give you).

This is all unnecessary and stressful. Therefore I’ve decided to move on. It’s been a good run, but no more ad revenue from me, WP.

Most of the content of this site has been migrated here: http://taoofdirt.blogspot.com/

Please update links to this blog if possible, it’s greatly appreciated.
