Fellowship of the Minds is back!

Good morning, patriots!

Last Wednesday, August 15, 2018, like a thief in the night, in the darkness of the early morning hours between 1 AM and 3 AM, WordPress (WP) arbitrarily and without warning took down Fellowship of the Minds (FOTM) — a blog that was nearly 9 years old, with 38½ million views, and tens of thousands of published posts.

The reason given was an unspecified “violation” of WP’s Terms of Service (TOS).

I immediately asked WP exactly which TOS we had “violated”.

It wasn’t until five days later that WP deigned to answer my question with a vague and all-purpose non-explanation:

“Upon review of your WP site, we no longer feel that your account aligns with our TOS and User Guidelines. As such you will no longer be permitted to use WordPress.com.”

Note their use of the word “feel”. One can dispute a fact — whether FOTM in fact had violated a particular term of service. But how can a “feeling” be disputed? You feel happy, which is something I can neither agree nor disagree nor dispute about. It’s an emotion, a feeling.

The domain transfer to our new server is completed, and we are back up and running at https://fellowshipoftheminds.com/.

We are in the process of retrieving and restoring posts from the old FOTM  —  a curse on WordPress for what they did to us — the digital equivalent of burning down not one book, but an entire library. Until we’ve completed the painstaking process, we won’t know just how much of the old FOTM can be restored, and how many posts are lost forever, unless we can find them in the Internet archives on the Wayback Machine.

In the coming days, weeks, and months, we will re-publish one-by-one whatever posts we are able to salvage, with the original publishing dates.

Thank you for your patience and loyalty. You were our buoy as we struggled to revive FOTM in the eight long days after WordPress burned our library down.

Please come and visit our new site. Exercise your First Amendment Constitutional right to freedom of speech and of opinion that our Founding Fathers so wisely and presciently created 242 years ago. We will not be silenced!!!

WWG1WGA = Where We Go One, We Go All

God bless you all, God bless Fellowship of the Minds, and God bless America,

Weird! A few minutes ago I looked on my ‘favorites’ for “the reptilian eye of Miley Cyrus”, and it had 404 not found. Then just now I looked and found it on a search engine (duckduckgo.com) Great!! 🙂 Did you guys restore it most of the content or what? Awesome! 🙂
My old bookmarks don’t work, that is what happened. Just realized it.

Just guessing, I think it depends on where you (or if you) archive your stuff. I know that my hard drive crashed about a year ago and I lost a bunch. I had another backup so I managed to restore some of it. It’s a pain. The information sharing is wonderful, but not without a price. I’m too old to want to study that hard to understand all of the intricacies of it. I am curious about whether their “terms of service” covers who owns the data (for example). It is also my understanding that some websites back up all… Read more »

Dr. Eowyn, Well Done! It took me a while to reconnect after satan’s minions thought they could wipe the past clean with their poison. But they forgot about the antidote – Our steadfast determination and faith in GOD to persevere to always do what is RIGHT and GOOD… Proclaim the TRUTH and the WORD to all! Well Done, again!

I was very sorry to read of your being shut out of WP and the great loss to yourself and your readers, including me. WP cancelled me as well, also without prior notice and without clear explanation. I suspect that this is part of a general silencing of all voices that would present information impeding the attacks against President Trump and attempting to promote globalist news domination before the upcoming November elections. I have applied for continuation of FOTM subscription and the establishment of a new blog. Complete recovery of lost material would be good, of course. By the way,… Read more »

Dr. Eowyn, thank you for your comment, especially for it being given during a time of far greater loss to yourself than to me. But, then again,, your loss is our loss as well. (How is that for self-pity? Joke, of course.)

Now this is scary. I had reposted dozens, if not more than a hundred, of your posts for more than a year. But I did not notice when you disappeared in August. True, I had undertaken some new responsibilities and was busier than I had been in years, but still…why did I not notice? Could it be influence of smart meter on outside wall only about a yard from where I sit (in my kitchen, where I spend most of my time while at home)? Whatever, I stumbled across your name in a list of subscriptions to be managed. I’m… Read more »
