WordPress suspended the Stop NATO site from posting any new material earlier today, with this announcement:
“Warning: We have a concern about some of the content on your blog. Please click here to contact us as soon as possible to resolve the issue and re-enable posting.”
Repeated efforts to contact them have produced no result.
A year ago Military Times threatened the Stop NATO e-mail list with legal action and, after contacting them and assuming the matter resolved, they got Yahoo Groups to threaten to shut down the list and even cancel my personal e-mail account.
Material on the WordPress site has been backed up, and everything posted to date is still accessible, but it’s not certain for how long.
As everyone familiar with both the site and the list know, no incitement to violence or other illegal action, no attempt to solicit money and no derogatory statement toward any demograhic group have ever appeared on either the mailing list or the news site.
The sole “crime” of which both are guilty is of being anti-war and anti-militarist.Yours for peace,
