Defamation

WordPress.com is an internet service provider based in the US, as are all of our servers.

We are covered by section 230(c) of the US Communications Decency Act which states that internet service providers are not held liable for content (such as allegedly defamatory, offensive, inaccurate, or harassing content) that is posted on the sites they host for their users.

We host millions of web sites for our users and are not able to control or police the hundreds of thousands of blog posts our users create every day.

If you have a complaint about one of our blogs, please follow our complaints procedure.
