Conservative Treehouse WordPress Deplatformed the Popular Blog
One of the most popular blogs “The Conservative Treehouse” said Sunday that was de-platformed or removed by its WordPress hosting providers. The platform has 50,000 – 1,000,000 unique visitors every day.
On Sunday, the blog himself reported that they will need to find a new hosting company to further carry out their blog. They said WordPress kicked them out.
What was the Notification?
In their announcements, they said that they had received the following notification: “Given the incompatibility between your site’s content and our terms, you need to find a new web hosting provider company and must migrate the website by Wednesday, 2nd December.”
According to the above notification, “The Conservative Treehouse” is being kicked-off the WordPress website hosting platform. Because their research and discussion’s content was not according to the ideology of those who define what is acceptable speech and what is not.
The site operators said that they have never violated any terms and WordPress didn’t provide them the good reasons to think.
They said in their blog post:
WordPress is not providing any reason for removing or deplatforming the blog because there is no justifiable reason for it. Perhaps, this is the most alarming part and everyone should pay attention. They do not care.
Just like the social media platforms Twitter, Facebook, Youtube, etc. These platforms remove or spam the content without providing any reason to think about it. CTH said WordPress de-platformed the blog without any explanation in which way the site’s content was incompatible with the terms of the hosting provider.
The blog explains that it has no explanation against this WordPress decision. Considering that there is no hate speech on the site. Moreover, there is no abusive, violent, or foul speech in its content. The content on the discussions is the same that happens around the world.
The site owners have assured their readers that the blog will return. It will come in the newest form which is “CTH 2.0”, a new version of the Conservative Treehouse. But they had not told when the blog will return to the web again.
