WordPress Deactivates Blogs En Masse, This Blog Was A Casualty, & The QUICK Resolution By WP Support

A little after noon today my friend Alexander called me to tell me he couldn’t access my blog. At first I didn’t understand what he meant because (a) I didn’t believe it and (b) I really needed that coffee I was in the midst of making for a early afternoon boost so I had to have him repeat himself.
