Fight censorship!

Posted on August 19, 2009

Over a year ago, a friend of ours got his blog closed by Wordpress for violation of TOS. Essentially he got blocked because he linked to material that could lead to maybe a download of something that you might not have paid for. We became very upset and decided to open Baywords!

After a couple of weeks, the site had so many users that it basically couldn’t handle all of them. We have now fixed that problem and we’re very scalable. And today, we’re happy that we are just that.

A court in the US has decided that Google have to give out the identity of an anonymous blogger. This is very, very, wrong. We need our freedom of speech, and included in that is the right to be anonymous!  This is a democratic right and we will not allow that to be infringed upon.

Baywords is now back again, and we’re not taking any details on the users. As long as it’s legal to write, we won’t close down your blog. We will not give out any information, IPs or anything else — that data is deleted when no longer needed.

If you like our cause and want to support, we think that Wikileaks is a really good site and needs to be helped as well! All sites that allow anonymous whistle blowing or writing, should be supported in order to make sure that we have a democratic society.

Closing in to fixing it all

Posted on August 16, 2009

Now it should finally work to set up new blogs! Woho!

There are some users that registered that never got their blogs activated. It’s a bug in the software that we did and it’s a tricky one to fix — but we’re working on it right now.

For now, you can just add a new blog. If you have one of those that are “incorrectly installed” they might just start to be correctly installed in the near future, but it’s totally fine to skip the wait until we’ve fixed the error.

So, finally back on track, the free and uncensored site. Now with admins with a bit more time on their hands…

New upgrades

We’re still fixing the site from the upgrades. We hope it will be up and running smoothly 100% correct in a few days. There might be some issues with logins and such (we hope we fixed all of them).

The database has been splitted into several servers so it’s a big task to upgrade now.


Temporary no new registrations

Due to some problems with some software we’ve decided to not add to the problem by letting new users register blogs for a few days. We’re upgrading the software hopefully this week and that would sort the problems out, however it might take some more time so we just want to inform you guys.
