Without getting into too much detail, another blog Word Ejaculation, that I run with friends came under attack yesterday when an MP blogged about one of the contributors. Lies were told, a misled angry mob set about commenting on the contributor and traffic hit the other blog from every direction. To be honest, we enjoyed the publicity. Behind the scenes, the MPs mob have been reporting the blog for it’s content and this morning, Word Ejaculation was suspended then deactivated.
After contacting WordPress and highlighting the surrounding frenzy and mistreatment of the contributor, they have now fully reinstated the blog, finding no cause to suspend it. The blog is now classed as adult content, which is perfectly justifiable and in future, I will look to tone down some of the illustrative pictures posted by others (previously giving them full control on their piece.) This is my choice and not one enforced by WordPress.
The whole purpose of Word Ejaculation was to collect short stories of an adult nature written by whomever wanted the chance to submit their work. No one is criticised or judged for content or writing ability and the experience was to be a pleasant, freeing one.
I’m just grateful WordPress saw through the complaints and understood that no harm was being done. It’s a shame they don’t govern the MP’s malicious blog too.
Thanks to any of you who contribute or view Word Ejaculation, I hope you continue to do so in future.
