Follow-up to Money Matters: Identity Theft


WordPress

I want to thank WordPress.com for not only being watchful of scams but also being efficient and quick when there’s an issue with their blogs.

After posting today’s Money Matters on Identity Theft and discussing social security numbers, WordPress immediately deactivated our blog! Their automatic anti-spam controls believed the blog was trying to not only spam the blogosphere but also phish for people’s information. I say, great job!

Of course, I was a little worried for about 15 minutes trying to figure out how to fix the issue. After sending emails via the WordPress site as well as posting on their forum and tweeting them, I received an email from support staff explaining what happened and apologizing…and reactivating the blog.

That’s professionalism! Thanks, WordPress!
