Blog Temporarily Suspended
This blog was down for some hours today, with the message that “due to violation of the WordPress terms of service, this blog has been suspended”.
“Ok, here we go again”, I thought, and went to make soup for my family. Yes, I have a life, and loved ones to look after. This blog is by far not my number one priority in life.
After cooking and cleaning, I had time to write a mail to WordPress, asking about the problem. This too is routine now, as the blog has been under serious attacks before. This is the first time, though, that it has been shut down completely.
In my mind, I had already commenced Plan B: set up the blog with a different host, this one safe from attacks by AOL. Imagine my surprise, when suddently the blog re-opened, and this message came:
Our apologies – the system should not have done that.
We have removed the warning and we are very sorry for any concern it may have caused.
So, my friends: we are no longer at Defcon 5! It was a false alarm, and this blog is still in business.
