Still here, but at a new address

I was intending to close my blog in the next week or two, when unfortunately I had a virus on my computer.

Unknowingly, I made a post on blogger, with photos, that contained this virus. They deleted my blog, because I had uploaded a virus, but a method was available to appeal the decision. After 12 years with this blog,, and probably eight years with the previous, one might think they would cut me a little slack.

I appealed the ruling, and explained, but they stated

“Hello,

“wish I use this on the person who deleted my blog”

Researching, I imagine the reason they DELETED my blog is for the use of pictures that were not my own creation. Thus, a word of warning to those posting like I did. Most photos were from other websites, without the legal permission to use them

I wonder what WordPress rules are?

I will post for an indefinite amount of time, so drop by and leave a comment if you are so inclined.

One reason for blogging here is simply to challenge myself to learn new things.

now, will you reinstate Red’s blog, or do you need more?

So, here is my new home!

bottoms up

My parting thoughts to blogger

  1. Hi there! I had been following your previous blog for some time, but couldn’t comment as I only use WordPress. Thank you for the years of great content. Glad to see you are back! I will say that WordPress can be fairly strict about what they consider pornography…but I was grateful to get an email from admin (rather than my blog just being deleted), letting me know which of my pictures were too graphic. From what I can tell, no graphic sex pics, no dick pics, and no pussy pics (not even the spanking ones that show the girl bits from between the legs). The seem to be okay with boob shots. Hope this is helpful!

  2. Welcome back Red , you were sorely missed.
    The people who refused your appeal sound like the government….they have an appeal process but the answer is always no .
