  1. WordPress.com is an embarrassment. In terms of cost, they are x5 more expensive, in terms of customization they offer nil, in terms of customer service, it’s extremely slow. In terms of fancy designs, sure plenty, but that’s how they real you in by making you pay enormous sums upfront for cheap, low-scale, poorly supported, zero customized web design. You’re better designing your own. The WordPress software platform itself is ingenious and great but wordpress.com should not be in business and the fact that they pay people to write positive reviews is sure news that they are more than likely, nothing but maunders and thieves in the wasteland of the Internet.

    In summary:

    A horrible service
    They get you by the balls with pretty designs but zero versatility, even preventing you from uploading simple HTML files
    They watermark their shit all over your website, good luck running a business of any respectable sort
    They prevent even simple Paypal buttons

    If you want a simple blog and want to pay x10 to x15 more than you would with cheaper providers, go for WordPress.com. But if you don’t want to be ripped off, please stay away from these half-ass

  2. I don’t actually use wordpress, I use weebly. However I had to contact wordpress following the death of a close family member. I submitted a death certificate and 2 forms of photographic id but they were rude and insensitive about needing a further legal document to gain password access to the site, even though all I asked for was a page containing sensitive information to be removed. Eventually they said their policy was to make the whole site private (not one page) and they did this. But they were rude and upsetting. This was weeks after losing a family member to suicide by hanging. I can’t believe these people are called ‘happiness engineers’. I am disgusted and I would never use them for own personal or business needs.
