Is WordPress censoring conservative blogs?

Do you have a WordPress blog?

Are you noticing a decided slump in the number of readers (measured as “unique views”) for your blog?

The MAD Jewess has, and she believes WordPress — the server of her blog and also of Fellowship of the Minds (FOTM) — is deliberately suppressing and lying about her blog’s stats (statistics).

In her post of June 21, 2013, “Fascist, NAZI WordPress.com is Monitoring the MAD Jewess-BIGTIME,” she writes:

Not only are my stats a lie, many of my friends are not getting their subscriptions. […]

My husband has emailed wordpress 4X this week to no avail.  They don’t mind taking a little dough, but they will not EVER write back to help us out and FIX their STALINIST statistics..  We use to have many thousands a day, especially in late 2012 on up to April 2013. Then, Obama probably told them to shut us up for calling him what he is; a Murderer, liar, evil, satanic, dumb, asshole etc.  If we blogged about how liberals are wonderful and not debaucherous sobs, they would FIX OUR STATS.

NO, WordPress is not threatening to ‘shut me down’. Its much more cleverer than that.   They just mess with our statistics.  Make it look like all the work we do is for nothing. Its a psych game.  I am not alone in this.  Many WordPress folks have expressed their displeasure about this situation. 

SO, we are looking into hiring an investigator to see who else they are doing this to, how they do it and so forth.

There are complaints by other WordPress bloggers of not only declining number of views, but also static numbers of followers or subscribers.

There is a precedent of WordPress bending to the Left’s PC tyranny. In 2012, WordPress actually shut down the blog, Bare Naked Islam, because of complaints from CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations). Go here for the details.

Here on FOTM, I have noticed the following:

  • Our daily stats (# of views) are down by about a thousand a day.
  • Fewer sites seem to be picking up on and linking to our posts, although some of our posts still do get linked. Only recently, SteveQuayle.com had a link to a post by Trail Dust, “‘Constitution Teacher’ attacks Christian kids,” resulting in that post receiving more than 6,000 hits in one day.
  • FOTM’s following, however, continues to grow — as measured by the number of subscribers via Facebook, WordPress, email, and Twitter.

Before going to WordPress’s malicious machinations as the explanation, I first look to two other possibilities:

  1. Summer doldrums: Readership typically declines in the summer months, last summer being an exception because of the looming November 6 elections.
  2. People being spooked by Pres. Lucifer’s NSA blanket surveillance of even ordinary Americans, and so are staying away from the Internet.

We need more information, instead of a few anecdotal accounts and subjective speculations. Here are two polls, to help us gather more information before we hastily jump to a conclusion:

  • The first poll is for bloggers only.
  • The second poll is for readers of FOTM.

Thank you. 😀

since wordpress was hacked so badly here months back, none of my wordpress subscriptions will stay in place. They were all wiped out. I have tried to keep FOTM coming in, it will not. Resigning does no good. There are many “useful idiots” working very hard.

I haven’t told a lot of people why The DC Clothesline (my blog) left wordpress.com but I think it’s relevant. We got a three day suspension in which we were not allowed to post articles at all. We were not allowed to edit or do anything at all with our blog at that time. After three days they wrote me a little note and told me it was a mistake. They said their system had flagged me mistakenly and didn’t even offer an apology really. They just said I was up and running again. At that time we were receiving… Read more »

I receive several emails daily from WordPress blogs. They seem fine so far. Why not ask your readers to subscribe to email rather than visiting the site ? I do so so I don’t forget any each day.

ok, this sounds dumb, I know, but y’all had a story on your site that suddenly disappeared. it was rather shocking..but even so, I don’t remember what it was about now. I kept writing to ask what happened, as I wanted to share it on fb, and I never even got an answer. So I stopped coming here as much.. Maybe it was about sandyhook, or the boston marathon.. wish I could remember.

I am in no position to give an opinion, being new to blogging, but this really has my attention. How long will it be before the Left launches a “full court press” on the blogosphere?

I’ve been wondering that for 10 years… How long will “They” let us “Play”?

Do they really want to shut us up — OR — would they rather “let us” keep “exposing ourselves” so they can create a nice big fat “data profile” on our every thought/typed-word? It would appear from the massive spy machine they prefer the latter… Accumulate undeniable “internet evidence” for the day they roll out the “Lubavitcher guillotines” for all the “haters.” 🙂 (That would be us!)

People are, in general starting to withdraw on the internet because of paranoia about surveillance. They are now afraid to say express their opinions. It will get worse, I fear. They have used many gov. agencies to suppress conservatives views, the IRS, DHS, DOJ, the DEA, even DoD now (suppressing military Christians etc.) You can’t blame people for trying to go to ground, when they feel that they may be picked up at any second by the Gestapo. People are feeling that they have a target on their backs.

“People are, in general starting to withdraw on the internet because of paranoia about surveillance.” — Is that really the “buzz” out there in cyberland? (I’ve been out of the loop due to non-virtual matters.) Are people really saying they will disconnect? I can’t imagine it myself, unless I was like the on-ground leader of some big activist group, etc., I might take precautions. It’s a double-edged sword. There’s something to be said for both sides: 1. The Biblical Proverb that says to the effect of, “The wise man sees the trouble ahead & proceeds to conceal himself, whereas the… Read more »

My stats are down, although I can’t evidence a linkage of WordPress being influenced by big government to sabatoge my moralmatters.org website in any particular way. I do think as Dr. Eowyn that the summer doldrums and the NSA awareness has something to do with diminished page views.

However, I have definitely noticed that WordPress (upon occasion) has failed to allow some of my postings to be included in its “Reader” list.

I voted earlier. I still visit FOTM many times during the day but I have definitely cut back on my comments. The results of the Nov. election, the Sandy Hook and Boston incidents, the WH scandals have disturbed me so though I haven’t given up I feel resigned to the dissolution and chaos. I am just trying to put more energy into my personal and my spiritual relationships. On a very positive note we have had multiple trips to NJ to see family and just returned from a fantastic cruise to Bermuda. FOTM is very important to me so I… Read more »

I too voted and it seems that my visits to FOTM fluctuate along with other sites I visit, usually because of work or home related reasons. Over the past couple of weeks, my visits have increased. I love this site. I remember the deal over WordPress shutting BareNakedIslam down. I’ve been a reader and have regularly commented there for over three years. It was a CAIR orchestrated campain to shut her down. She has been back up for quite some time on a different domain and her readership is quite large recently hitting the 40,000,000 mark. Yes, I would not… Read more »

Our WP site has seen a significant drop in views over the past month and a half I would say. I attributed it to being graduation time, summer coming and stuff like that keeping folks busy with other things. If there is a conspiracy going on I’m glad that you and the Mad Jewess are working to expose it!

Nicolas von Schatz

Good that somebody is aware of all those suspicious changes that are going under the cover of bright and joyful interface mods (so trivial of them…) I paid a little attention to the counters and explained rather small number of views as a result of modern user preferences. When somebody is obsessed with social networks, “fun” and sharing, he wouldn’t go for conservative and anti-communist portals. (Though soon after this FOTM post was published I noticed a HUGE “jump” in stats of my project – the counters are really messed up.) But I do not care – my project is… Read more »

I own and manage several blogs and have been watching stats on them for years. Usually, the stats will go down in the summer months. However, I have noticed that this website, although, it appears to be a domain is not. It is what is known as a sub domain. The domain reads https://fellowshipofminds.wordpress.com wordpress.com is the domain and fellowshipofminds is the sub domain. The domain owner which in this case is wordpress.com have the final say on what is being put on their subdomains under their rules and guidelines. I would advise anybody who has a blog and doesn’t… Read more »

I’m wondering if speaking to Glen Beck would help. I realize people may not like Beck, but he is building a media block to enable free speech. At the same time, he needs money to fund it. I wonder if it would be possible for him to start a business similar to WordPress that would allow free speech. He could have another income stream, and bloggers could have a place of posting without interference.

I haven’t inquired re their position re “free speech,” but one of the original founders of Posterous blogs, Garry Tan, who quit due to the direction Posterous was heading which he disagreed with — & I don’t know the specifics of that; but Garry & another former Posterous employee, Brett, have been coding like mad for several months to build a new blogging platform that will “never go away, nor be bought, or sold-out” (Posterous team bailed & went to work for Twitter 2012, & a year later 2013 totally closed down). Garry/Brett’s new endeavor is in beta already at… Read more »

Do you read Doug Haggman’s DH’S insider columns over at Canada Free Press? His latest one from a few days ago discusses the Internet crackdown that has started and is going to get worse.

I despair and then I read the Psalms: “I will lift up my eyes to the hills, from whence comets my help.”

I do not know how to respond to the complaint about someone possibly throttling readership on conservative blogs because I have a Liberal blog and my readership isn’t all that great either. Maybe the problem is that we aren’t writing what people want to hear or that people are sick of politics or something like that – – – but I don’t thinkl conservative blogs are being singled out because my stats aren’t where I would like them to be either.

John, let me add my appreciation to Dr. Eowyn’s statement. I think I speak for many of us when I say it is a relief to hold these discussions with the civility you have just extended.

We may disagree, but we all remember a time when disagreement was allowed and encouraged.

Thank you,

Your site is literally the only one that shows up. In order to even get your site to show up you have to type “Word Press is Censoring comments” or otherwise you’ll just be given crap results.

I’m convinced Google is catering to the left and atheists who are fanatical. Google wants what makes money. They are no longer two guys out of a garage who care about their passion and haven’t been since they bought out YouTube.
