All I know is that it was due to a “violation of terms of service”. I never received any kind of warning about the alleged violation, and I’ve yet to receive an explanation from WordPress.com for what happened. As far as I know, it may have been nothing more than an internet glitch.
I’d like to thank everyone who lobbied WordPress to get my blog back online – the news spread on Twitter like wildfire…during the dinner hour while I was celebrating my husband’s birthday. It was almost impossible to keep up with all the helpful tweets.
Several valiant bloggers came to my aid, as well:
The Other McCain’s chivalrous Smitty was the first to leap into action: Free @NiceDeb !!!
NiceDeb is one of the solid blogs on the right, and a friend of this blog for years. ToS violation my left foot. She’s being harassed.
Wasn’t that nice?
The awesome and loveable Doug Ross is never at a loss for words: Fascists-In-Training Just Knocked Conservative Blogger @NiceDeb Off the Air. Here’s How You Can Help!
My guess is that some miscreant, wannabe-fascists on the left reported bogus “Terms of Service” (TOS) violations to get her all-too-accurate commentary kicked off the air.
That could be…but I don’t have any information to confirm or deny it. Hit the link for a photo of me smacking him in the chops at BlogCon, last Spring. If I posted it, here, I might be violating my terms of service.
The Camp of the Saints’ ever vigilant Bob Belvedere joined the chorus: ALERT: @NiceDeb Needs Our Help [Updated]
As did my blogging sister just a conservative girl at Potluck: Fellow PotLuck Blogger Has Nice Deb Blog Removed by WordPress:
Nice Deb has had her blog suspended for reasons that have not been made clear to her. If you go to her blog you just get the message:
nicedeb.wordpress.com is no longer available.
I suggest you contact them to ask them why they would take down a blog that has been up for five years or so without so much as an emailed explanation to the reasons why.
Now, I read her blog almost daily, I have never seen anything on there that would violate these terms:
And Smitty was linked by Instapundit!
It wasn’t long after Insty linked that my blog reappeared online. Hmmmm!
Thank you so much, all of you. Now I feel bad for not blogging at Potluck for how long, now? I’m ashamed to say….Years?
Don’t feel bad – I haven’t had time for my own blog, Leftwing Institute for Civil Discourse aka Moonbattracker, all month, either. There just isn’t enough time in the day for me to do everything I want to do online.
Actually, I have another post I’d like to do, here, tonight. Charles B. tipped me a good one. But it’s after midnight and I have to get to bed. It will have to wait until morning.
I neglected to thank the Twitchy Team for coming to my defense: Blogger Nice Deb sent to WordPress gulag; Conservatives rally in support; Update: blog restored
Wed morning, 8:16: Of course, Gateway Pundit has it now.
