I just got this charming message from the faceless automatons that run WordPress:
We have determined that the following content on your blog meets our definition of calls to violence. Specifically:
Publishing this type of content is forbidden by our Terms of Service, and we’ve hidden this content from public view.
As stated in our User Guidelines, please desist from inciting, encouraging, threatening or promoting acts of violence or harm.
Continued publication of this type of content may result in the permanent suspension of your blog and/or account.
Automattic Trust & Safety
So I was “calling for violence” by merely making available a piece of writing that was being talked about all over the news but was unavailable for review by the public. Ridiculous, but is anybody surprised? If you are one of the thousand or so people who already downloaded the file, please upload it wherever you can get away with it and make it as broadly available as possible. This totalitarian bullshit must be resisted.
As I said before, I’m willing to send the manifesto pdf via encrypted email — but if as many of you contact me requesting a copy as downloaded the file over the past few days, it will take me a good long time to get to all of you, so keep that in mind. Also if you find another source (hopefully more stable), feel free to post URLs in the comments of this post or the previous one.
Also if this blog gets nuked, I will at least temporarily relocate to Substack at this address: https://antisocialdarwinist.substack.com/ Hopefully I can get all of the content here ported over there, or somewhere else, before they ban this blog permanently.
