Thank you for all of your support yesterday. I contacted WordPress by email and on the user’s forum. I was emailed back very quickly and the blog had already been deleted from WP and WP removed them as a follower of my blog. I heard back from the forum this morning, which while helpful and supportive, is definitely not for the urgent blogging situation. And whoever thought there would actually be an urgent blogging situation?
I also emailed a description of the site and its title to the Portland office of the FBI. I called the office to follow up. Good to know, when you call the FBI, a human answers immediately! I told my story to the agent, who asked if I had contacted WP and said that I then register the complaint with an email, which I had already done.
I don’t know what the hell that site was. I’m glad it is gone. Just as in our physical communities we must be vigilant about what is going on in our cyber communities. I really didn’t want to click on that link but I felt like if I didn’t, I was just turning my head and pretending not to see it.
So that’s that.
In much much happier news….my daughter Annie got her learner’s permit today on her 3rd try (just like her mom)! In 6 months she can get a license and I won’t have to drive her to school anymore! We went for a spin around our circle. It went pretty well till a car pulled up behind her on the turn up to our house and she got nervous and drove (however slowly) into a ditch. She got out and I climbed into the driver’s seat and guided the mighty Volvo back onto the road.
Tell you what, life is good.
