I have had several bad experiences with wordpress.
If I really thought wordpress would quit their problems and move forward, I would get over the experiences I have had with them.
But, I keep coming back to one of the problems, control.
WordPress controls who can and cannot see my blog. And they do it with a very tight noose.
Freedom of Religion? Only if you are from one of their approved religions, check and see how many blogs were actually about Easter this last Easter …. Enough said.
Freedom of Speech? Only for the progressive agenda.
So, do I advertise to get around their censorship?
Certainly. But, if I pay more than I am already paying, do I really need, or want, to continue using wordpress?
That is my conundrum ….
