Maggie’s Notebook: Bare Naked Islam Reinstated – Bare Naked Islam Support: A Suggestion for Bloggers and Commenters

A last minute update. Reader TW informed me of a Tweet that Bare Naked Islam is back up on WordPress.com but must be gone by January 6th. A tweet says WordPress claims CAIR had nothing to do with their expulsion.

@barenakedislam

SHOCKER! WP has reinstated my blog and say CAIR did not pressure them. But they still want me gone by Jan 6

Read the latest BNI post here and note that while WordPress.com says CAIR did not pressure them, BNI says CAIR bragged about it all over the web.

Read it all here.


This message arrived from someone associated with Bare Naked Islam:

Of course we are looking at WordPress to tell us why, but it seems their staff is conveniently on holidays until Jan 2nd…[still were there to take her site down, we note].

I am hoping the site can be brought back with another server if this one keeps caving in to CAIR, or whichever variation is forcing the issue.

The last time BNI was taken down, CAIR was to blame.

For what it’s worth, you can email WordPress Support at support@wordpress.com.

We would suggest that counterjihad bloggers make plans to obtain independent hosting if at all possible. WordPress.com, Google Blogger, and other free hosting sites are more subject to outside manipulation.

Zilla has more details.
