    This website is managed by WordPress. It seems advocating the advancement of *actual* nazis is in contrast to what our country fought so hard for in WWII. It would probably be a good idea to remove the website from your association, lest they end up killing someone and it’s due to your enabling of the propagation of their ideals.

    No, that website is neither endorsed nor managed by WordPress.

    WordPress is free software. Anybody can use it, for any purpose, on any hosting service.

    When you publish something on sites like Facebook or Twitter, then it’s actually hosted on their sites. They can take it down. But WordPress is only software, not a host. WordPress is not a group of people, nor a company that hosts websites. It’s just free software.

    Much like you can make printed documents using Microsoft Word, you make websites using WordPress.

    So, we cannot control what people use the software for, nor can we “remove” any particular site on the internet that chooses to use the software. We do not retain control over the usage of the software in that manner.

    Now, that particular website appears to be hosted by Dreamhost, so if it is objectionable, then you may want to look into how to send information to them about the problem.

    But WordPress cannot be responsible for how people use the free web publishing software, which is available to anybody, for any purpose.
