support staff at Wordpress.org abusively censoring user posts for no good reason

Abusive Content Moderation at WordPress.org — of all places…

 

WordPress.org continue their infamous policy of censoring and retrospectively enforcing some nonexistent “policies”. Both despicable practices have been observed for years.

Early Signs of WordPress Staff Incompetence

It all started with WordPress.org moderators removing all content of the www.blogginghacks.com website mirrored from a standalone WordPress installation to their proprietary “WordPress.com” hosting just because they thought that “hacks” referred to something illegal.

Seriously, guys? What is your founder and godfather, Matt Mullenweg, if not a HACKER, you total failures? Are they seriously telling us they didn’t know the difference between hacking and attacking — what an embarrassing pile of losers, as apparently this is the case. So Matt Mullenweg may be a hacker, but he certainly is not a good business man in control of his outfit, else he would deploy some better management practices internal communications, and staff training. Steve Jobs, on the other hand, was never heard of failing to implement or see to it that every detail is working throughout his business.

The Slip-Ups Constantly Go On

And this is not even the only problem you encounter with WordPress.org. Other ones include user account managers being unable (or unwilling) to actually resolve support tickets, look into userID problems, or provide real support for out-of-the-ordinary situations which they lacklusterly ignore until the user gives up on his support request. Another “great” way of managing and organizing your business. Come on, guys!

Hardly any Better than Facebook, Google/Youtube & Friends

So even though Open Source, WordPress is less than ideal, is not a cure-all for the Web or, in fact, anything particularly special. At the end of the day, they behave as badly as Facebook, Twitter, Google, or actually any commercial and proprietary platform out there, just because they believe they can. As a result, WordPress’ overall branding and corporate identity are increasingly blemished — by the stupidity of their representatives and staff or “family”. Some family.

Solutions

So it turns out the only real solution is going it all alone, i e without the extra flow of visitors from mirroring on WordPress.com and without sharing your views with the “community” on rotten WordPress.org. Which is a pity, not just because humans are looking for companions, networking, and like-minded people, but also because the community always suffers when central actors or functionaries turn rogue. However, engaging in that kind of leftovers of a community just to have your texts deleted for no real reason is clearly a waste of time!

This is what you get for your generosity of giving your time in order to let others know of a fabulous experience with the excellent Photo Video Store WP-Plugin.

 

 

Sharing would have been caring but, on WordPress.org, no thank you.

For reference, below is a copy of that (second) Review I wrote for an excellent Plugin. I had to re-write it because they deleted the original (much better and more detailed) one, just because they can and without giving any explanation nor even citing the alleged rule it was said to contradict. Little wonder then that the rant in italics had to be added in order to explain the incompleteness of the text and why WordPress.org’s behavior towards its users is wrong.

Here’s that re-written and deleted-again (second) Review text:

I can just repeat, this is a great Plugin, and I lllove it. The rest of my praise for this fantastic plugin would take too much time to repeat — and in light of “supervisors” and “policy” on here, it’s simply not worth it (explanation below).

<em>Unf, the morons at WP.org removed my review retrospectively for no reason whatsoever (and disabled my account), as they’re known to do when you even mention a word like “hacker” or anything these little pricks deem “inappropriate”, even if it clearly is not! Seriously, at WP of all places (what is Matt Mullenweg if not a hacker)… Then again, it turns out he certainly not a great team leader, else he would get rid of failures like those “support” staffers of his, who simply don’t get it. (Just for the record, there’s a DIFFERENCE between an atacker and someone who writes code, I am surprised I need to explain that HERE.) That one was not even the only incident of that kind, I also had domain names removed on wordpress.com simply because these losers thought “bloggingHacks” referred to any illegal activity. Come on, guys, don’t you know the first thing of what you’re doing here?!</em>
