After seeing wordpress.com censor many blogs, I associate the WordPress brand with oppression and bigotry. Otherwise, WordPress has a history of being vulnerable to hacking. I avoid it and have recommended the same for others.

I see that I'm not the only one they've blocked for no reason. I think my mistake was when I forwarded an email to three whole addresses while reporting a phishing incident. The form shown in the picture does not work. My emails to their support team have had no effect thus far, so I'm forced to change the email address associated with important accounts to make sure that I don't miss important messages. My pen pal will be sad to never receive a reply. GMX is excrement for this.

Over the years, I've seen Google censor/remove many blogs, groups, and videos, and even delist websites for no good reason besides imposing their views on others. I can find no real way to contact Google, while every reputable business provides ways to be reached in case of problems. I don't agree with Google's spying on people all over the web, even those who choose not to use Google's websites. The only way that I know of to stop the spying is to block Google's servers. Google lies about supporting diversity and opposing discrimination when they are censoring people who have different views. Google's flagship is their search engine, and most of its search results are not as good as they should be for a business that claims to be a leader in artificial intelligence and natural language processing. Maybe if they spent more time working on improving search results instead of censoring everything and spying on everyone, they would have better search results. Google would not index my website, saying there was an error, but they provided no error message to indicate what the problem was, making it impossible to solve the problem - if there even really was one. Other search engines had no such problem. I feel there will be no freedom on the web until something is done about Google, and people who actually give Google their money or click on Google's ads are only feeding a monster.

I noticed eBay was selling many hate books, included one that promoted murder, which is against their own policies and probably against the law, so I reasonably reported the items and complained on eBay's forum, but my thread was deleted by a moderator called li_gary who claimed it was disruptive or repetitive, which made no sense, so I closed my eBay account, and they won't be getting any more of my money. They also show a lot of misleading prices in search results, so you see a clock for $1, but when you go to the page, it's really $30, because the $1 price was for a plug adapter and not the product that is actually being advertised, and that makes it impossible to sort by price, it wastes your time, and it's just plain dishonest.

Yandex.ru

If you're like me, they'll claim you're infected and try to get you to download some supposed antivirus or demand more personal information. As a computer programmer, I'm fairly certain I haven't been infected on every computer that I've used in the last ten years as Yandex claims. These folks are either completely inept or scammers.
