    How does one go about reporting a WordPress blog that is in violation of the TOS?

    Is it a .com blog or a self hosted blog? And which of the TOS does it violate?

    [something].wordpress.com... (not the real address)

    Doesn't violate anything yet, but it will. Long story.

    The TOS it will violate is writing libelous statements about individuals who are not part of the public domain. This character has stalked/harrassed/bullied several people over the last couple years. We have had to learn how to get his stuff removed when possible and this newest attempt looked possible. He has had a website devoted to his pet hatreds before, but that was a private website and we didn't even attempt to go to the hosting company or anything. He let that domain lapse and this is his latest offering.

    blogs hosted on wordpress.com :

    see http://www.wordpress.com

    there is NO terms of service for self hosted wp blogs other than whatever the host dictates.
