DrMike has just been terminated of his moderator status in WordPress.com forums.
To understand the title of the post, please read the wp.com forums thread. Adding your two cents is optional.
DrMike runs his own WPMu install at daria.be – until 31st July 2007, that is.
DrMike, thanks for all your help and support. Am sorry that WordPress.com has done this to you. This is not the way to treat a volunteer.
Edit 23 July 2007: daria.be is shut down today, 8 days from the supposed date.
Daria.be is now down. I will no longer support this software.
I had planned on remaining online until the 31st but due to the lack manners from the WordPress developers and continued trouble caused by them, it’s not worth my time.
Have been backing up self’s blog over there every couple of days, so this unexpected twist didn’t hit self too hard.
One can consider DrMike’s actions as not being professional, but have said in the thread (see link above) before that he is not a professional, so to consider him that may be an overestimation on our parts?
For the record, DrMike, don’t hold any grudges against you. Hope you don’t hold any against self too – let bygones be bygones, in our case at least. As we were only socially acquainted through our associations with volunteering in WordPress.com forums and your hosting one of self’s blogs, it may be… weird to say let’s keep in touch? Nevertheless, hope we could.
Edit 24 July 2007: Think DrMike is reading this post or the forums, because self’s blog at daria.be is inexplicably back up! (For how long this time? Don’t know.) Just downloaded the xml file.
Later: DrMike sent an e-mail clarifying the situation –
Just for reference it was a typo that caused the site to come down. I
had though it was back up and running before I left for the night but
I guess not.
