I’ve been seeing a lot of people saying they’re temporarily removing or moving their stories to other platforms because WP is taking down stories without a reason.
I feel like we need to stop and take a breath here before making rash decisions. Let’s play devil’s advocate for a second.
I’ve seen a lot of hearsay, she said, he said situations and reposting of what this person said, I know someone that had it done. Everyone seems to know someone in these situations, don’t they? There needs to be more substantial evidence than that. There needs to be proof.
What if you’re not getting the full story? What if the story did violate the TOS but the author was never informed?
Temporarily removing your books. Is removing 50, a 100 or even 1000 books going to make a difference in the sea of millions of books already here? Chances are WP won’t even notice.
Your readers. By removing stories without completion will only punish your readers for something someone else did (WP, another author) Let’s face it loyal readers (or even readers for some) are not easy to find here on WP.
Thoughts? Is there anything else on the flip side people need to think rationally about?
