    Recently one of the website (pkpolitics.com) hosted by wordpress.org violated the privacy law by displaying my IP and email address just because of my ethnical background.

    This is not only unethical but also illegal in most parts of the world. I have tried to contact wordpress.org many times but unfortunately no response has been shown by the admin of wordpress.org.

    I have already lodged the complaints against pkpolitics.com at Information Commisioner's office in Germany, UK and the US. They will soon take actions against the unprofessional acts of admin of the website.

    I dont want wordpress.org to get in any trouble because of admin of pkpolitics.com. If anyone of you have the contact details of wordpress.org, please share with me as they havent replied to my emails yet OR if the admin of wordpress.org is reading this post, please contact me.

    Kind regards,
    F.

    WordPress is a piece of free software that anybody can download and use to make their own websites.

    WordPress.org does not host any websites.

    Any issues you have with the pkpolitics.com website should be taken there. WordPress.org is not affiliated with them in any way.

    Also, the USA has no privacy laws that would protect such information, so if the website is hosted there, you're out of luck.
