I’m a long time member of the Word Press community and thank you all for the wonderful service you provide.

Recently upon doing some site maintenance, I went to the Reader and typed in my name, Sharon Lee Davies-Tight, to see what others would see in the first few words of the tagline to the right of the feed.

All of my sites came up under that name, including all the ones that weren’t launched yet (which I have since made private)…

…except two of my sites, which could not be found, even when I typed in the exact name located in the url: the animal-free chef and sharon on the news.

1- theanimal-freechef.com


2- sharononthenews.com

I haven’t a clue as to why these two sites could not be found through searching for them, when all the others could be found. I also tried it on somebody else’s computer, and they still don’t show up.

I’ve had THE ANIMAL-FREE CHEF site since 2015 with 904 posts and I’m still active.

I’ve had the SHARON ON THE NEWS site since 2014 with 349 posts and I’m still active.

Please provide me with an explanation and a remedy.

Thank you all again for your service.

Hi Sharon Lee Davies-Tight,

Thank you for reaching out. Upon reviewing your sites, we have determined that they both contain mature content and have such been flagged as “Mature”.

We do permit mature content on WordPress.com, including text, images and videos that contain offensive language and mature subject material. However, websites that contain such content must be marked as Mature in our system.

A website that is marked as Mature is excluded from public areas of the WordPress.com service. This means:

It will not appear in the Reader or other tag listings

It will not appear in Top Blogs listings, recent posts, or related posts listings on other blogs

The associated users cannot use that URL as a link in their WordPress.com Forums profile

Mature websites and their owners are permitted to utilize all other aspects of WordPress.com. We do not suspend accounts or sites solely for the presence of mature content, and there are no interstitials or other “age gates” on WordPress.com.

Hello again,

Thank you for replying.

I don’t understand what constitutes mature material. Sharon On The News is simply commentary on news stories of the day taken from popular news sites, mainly Yahoo news and Associated Press, etc. Photos are used that coincide with the news stories.

The Animal-Free Chef is animal-free recipes and reviews of animal-free products. I don’t see how either of those could be considered mature content. It’s vegan and not controversial.

Did someone at Word Press determine that animal-free recipes and reviews and commentary on the news from respected news agencies was lewd or offensive enough to block the Word Press community from seeing them?

Has this been rated mature for all the years I’ve been posting without anyone telling me? And who does that? It seems so harsh that not one example of mature content was given to warrant that action.

It’s hard to accept that no one has been seeing my posts form these two sites for all these years of working on them. Why wouldn’t anyone notify me?

Both sites in the ‘discussion section’ are rated G – suitable for all audiences.

Please explain further.

Best regards,

Sharon Lee Davies-Tight

“I don’t understand what constitutes mature material.”

Please see our Mature Content page for more information:


As mentioned there, the examples are not an exhaustive list.

Best regards,

WORD PRESS failed to answer Sharon’s questions both times she wrote to them.

Where were the happiness engineers?

When someone blocks your content without notification and when discovered, without citing examples of why the sites were blocked and by whom, it should raise concerns about copyrighted material that essentially does not exist on the WORD PRESS platform.

To block websites clandestinely over long periods of time without notifying the owner of the domains and copyrighted content should raise even greater concerns.

Sharon asked for details and a remedy and received neither.

None of Sharon’s websites are monetized, so who would make that request to ban those particular sites from the WORD PRESS COMMUNITY?

The questions that mattered went unanswered.


Word Press engages in prejudice, discrimination, torture and slaughter of ideas – THE FIVE FATAL FLAWS – one leads to the other if left unchecked.

Word Press punishes bloggers by silencing independent voices at the behest of agenda-driven groups who feign offense by opinions that don’t fall in line with their prejudicial agendas, and governmental bodies stating national security reasons.

It’s called revenge by THE BIG RIB PEOPLE.
