Friday! The Sound of Silence

Hello to anyone who makes it here from the wordpress blog, this will get you up to speed-

I first became aware of the message ‘ 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.‘ on 26th January 19:00GMT, I have sent four messages through the linked reply form and one through support, as of this date I have received no reply and the restrictions remain on my blog. I am posting this as a topic to try and force some resolution as clearly the established route is failing.
YES I used the linked reply form linked in that message.
YES I have checked my spam folders for admin messages.
I have no idea what the issue is although as I blog on human rights and abuses of power quite often, sometimes with an irreverent satirical approach that might have a bearing. Also in the week Tony Blair gives evidence and Aafia Siddiqui is on ‘trial’ in NY this has silenced me at an important moment. For those unaware of the English legal landscape this blog post by former ambassador Craig Murray (who resigned from the UK Government because it endorsed the use of torture) will give you an idea of the censorious climate-

Of course this might have nothing to do with such issues, but as it is Friday and the restrictions were placed sometime on Monday/Tuesday and I have yet to receive a reply from WP it is not unreasonable to take this measure to elicit some response.

That is a forum message I have posted tonight, I am completely in the dark about this, all I know for sure is I cannot at the moment author new posts to my wordpress blog, instead of ‘Publish’ the button says ‘Submit for Review’ I have sent one post to that on Tuesday, it has yet to appear on my blog.
Anyways, it is Friday and I hate to miss one so take it away fellas-

    Just got the same warning and can’t publish my news-related (“nothing’s as old as yesterday’s newspaper”) comment on the sovereign debt crisis. Anyone who visits my blog would probably agree it’s somewhere on the VERY low end of rude language or copyright infringement or whatever … well, I’ve no idea. My best wishes as to you and your problem. It would be rather cynical if this happened to human’s rights advocats …

    Sorry to hear about it, I am back now but do not have an explanation, I did find making a forum post

    got attention and seemed to speed the process along, if this is a bug then WP are being very quiet about it and still using their draconian restriction policy.
