Policies & Safety

Terrorist Activity

While our service is designed to enable users to freely express their ideas and opinions, however controversial, safety is important to us. As such, we don’t allow websites of terrorist groups recognized by the United States government, or genuine calls for violence against individuals or groups on WordPress.com.

The U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control maintains a list of “Specially Designated Nationals,”  which we are prohibited by law from doing business with. We do not allow individuals, groups, or entities on this list to use WordPress.com.

For more details about what is and isn’t permitted on WordPress.com, please see our Terms of Service and User Guidelines.

If you’ve come across any content which you believe violates our policies, please let us know. We will suspend sites that violate our policies and may also report sites or users to law enforcement if we believe there is a genuine risk of physical harm or threat to public safety. Please see our Legal Guidelines for more information.
