So, here I am minding my own business, writing my posts on Pret and doing other things in life, when I was informed that my blog cannot be found on WordPress.com READER when a WordPress user is signed in and searching for “Pret A Manger”.
And I’m sorry, I’m a better writer than a drawer, apologies! I do understand that the red middle-finger / dick that I drew looks more like a cactus with a sun burn that has lost its “spikes”, but I never claimed to be an artisté! I’m just exposing Pret and have pulled down their pants, revealing their teenie tiny dicks! And now I’m censored for it … Of course.
Censorship is nothing new under the sun, it’s happening throughout the Internet since the stone ages of the Internet. It’s subtle, it’s sneaky, it’s disgusting!
I contacted WordPress, and this is their reply today.
Viewer discretion advised and disclaimer: Please go to the toilet before you read the following otherwise you may wet yourself laughing!

WordPress replies with the following:
“Your site has been classified as mature. For more information about this, please see the following guide:
When I argued that they came back with that I use curse words! 😀
I just did a quicky, sorry a quick search on 3 regular non-curse words words: Vagina, Penis and Dick.
And the following came out … no pun intended of course.
I leave it to investigative journalists to dig in to WordPress.com’s censorship in the name of “adult content”.
And after I was informed of WordPress censorship, I did a search on just 3 words:
Now, which part of my blog is mature content porky pie?
I also sent WorPress examples of blogs where people say “fuck”, “cunt”, “shit” without “bleeping it” out, and other profanities. But they are NOT moved into the mature content / porn section. I showed WordPress the hypocrisy because they use the “mature content” excuse for censorship, because Pret must have bugged them. WordPress is in a pickle because of free speech on one hand, but then when they censor use a bogus reason on the other. They please Pret by hiding my blog within WordPress, and use the excuse for censorship that it is mature content!
My blog can be found on search engines of course, but it’s about the internal WordPress reader when other bloggers are logged in doing a search.
Dear WordPress, I’m sure you don’t need my business as you pride yourself in being the most used web-provider out there. I should have known better and choose the little guy web provider. I pay for 1 main URL and 2 further URL’s. I was planning to upgrade, I will shop around to move my website over to another web provider who doesn’t suck up to Pret A Manger’s tiny dick!
I worked at Pret A Manger and survived systemic workplace bullying during bereavement that involved HR, the top leadership, HQ and even the now “retired” former CEO Clive Schlee. I declined 4 settlement offers if I am silent about my ordeal. But I rather speak out to help others. For an overview of important blog entries of my experience with Pret, please visit “My Ordeal with Pret A Manger”. The little arrow to the right next to each heading will lead directly to the post.
An incomplete list on what other Pret staff say about Pret’s bullying environment: Caught in the Act Bullying at Pret.
I tell my story for the first time verbally in below audio player interview on a podcast by The Adam Paradox, and wrote two articles in the Scottish Left Review.
