    This is a request to WordPress Administrators (or whatever they are called)

    I wanted to start a blog on photography. I choose the name 35mm. When I tried to sign up with the URL http://35mm.wordpress.com/ I was told the blog already exist. I decided to view the blog and I was shocked to see that it was just a demo WP blog. How can you guys waste such an impressive name on a demo blog? Please move that blog to somewhere else and make the URL available, to me and only me :)

    Please. I request you.

    Regardless, the answer is no. From the FAQ:

    An unused blog has a name I want. Can I have it?
    Sorry, you can’t.

    Can you delete an unused blog so I can have it?
    That’s a sorry too.

    Will unused blogs be deleted so they can be recycled and used by others?

    I’m afraid not.

    You could, of course, shell out 20 bucks to buy your own domain and glue it to a WP.com blog.
