We received the following message from Wordpress.com - without any warning or reason.  They accused us of violating their policies - which were absolutely false.  We're a small business using what we thought was a legitimate website service. They never responded to our requests to review their decision.  We spent a lot of time and money. Now, Wordpress is making us look like a bunch of hacks. 

"This blog has been deactivated because we believe it does not comply with the WordPress.com Terms of Service or advertising policy. If your blog is designed to promote affiliate links, get rich quick programs, banner ads, consists solely or mostly of duplicate or automatically generated material, or is part of a search engine marketing campaign, WordPress.com is not the place for you. Please use the Export feature to move your content to a more appropriate hosting service.

Occasionally we make mistakes. If you believe we have misclassified your blog, please click here to contact us as soon as possible so we can fix the problem." My warning to anyone thinking of using Wordpress.com is don't... Use Google or anyone else instead.
