    Hi Guys,

    Someone has posted a misleading false post about me on their wordpress blog. I want this post removed from the blog because it's lies and the person who posted this is just trying to ruin my name and reputation.

    I am really offended by this and I want it deleted because this is violating my rights as a person, and bad information is posted without no hard proof. I tried contacting the administrator but haven't got a response that it will be deleted. I haven't done anything wrong and the person is just posting false accusations against me saying I'm a rip off ect. I've tried sorting things out with him, but he just don't respond. There is no hard evidence I've done anything wrong.

    Where do I go to contact wordpress to take this post off which is not only offending me, it's complete lies, people trying to ruin my reputation. Who do i contact about this matter. Blog link post i want removed is below.

    @progeyser786 - although that link goes to a blog created with WordPress, that is a self-hosted blog and not hosted at WordPress.com. As such, we have no control over how that user uses his blog. Check whois information of blog and contact his/her webhost service and post complaint there.

    As mercime says, since the site is self-hosted we can do nothing about it. You would need to get in touch with the site administrator, or, failing that, the company providing the hosting.

    I've also removed the link to the article. As with most of these things, by publically trying to address the issue, you also draw attention to it. This site gets many times more visitors than most of the sites that get linked to ever would otherwise.
