This morning I saw a post by Linda G. Hill saying that HarsH ReaLiTy is closing down. I did not really get why WordPress has decided to do so but I shared the post anyway because Jason Cushman is a creative and very helpful guy. He might not always use a language that suits everybody but neither does Charlie Hebdo and they are hailed as the defender of freedom of speech.
No, the problem is not freedom of speech. The problem is how many followers he has and how many blogs he follows! DUH?!
I always loved WordPress for its exceptional way of connecting bloggers with each other. To flag a guy, who has lots of followers and follows a lot just sounds like contradicting themselves.
It looks like me standing up for him might mean my blogs will be closed as well. Something WordPress makes very hard when you want to do it yourself. DUH?!
So let me get that straight guys: You give exceptional possibilities to connect with other bloggers and to follow and like but when someone uses it successfully you close them down?
