    Is this a wordpress.com site or a self-hosted WordPress install?

    wordpress.org does not, and cannot. block any WordPress sites.

    If its self hosted you can do this
    If you've just lost your password. All you really need to do is open up your phpmyadmin from cpanel (if your comfortable working in there) and find the (i think) wp-users table, open it up and find where you see your user account, you will see the password encrypted in that string, click on edit and go to a md5hash generator online and type in the password you want, get the hash string and replace the old password string in your database and wah-lah, new password. Go log in to your site. And thats how you get a new pw in wordpress when all else fails, lol.

    Bye the way, my servers have cpanel and phpmyadmin on them, yours may have plesk or some other server control panel called something else... If so, you should still have a PhPMyAdmin in there somewhere, this is where you will want to go to do what Im talking about up there.

    If it's a self hosted site, why do you have a "Back to WordPress.com" link?
