I have tried for over a month to log in to my (now old) research blog unsuccessfully. Every time I try I receive the following message:
We apologize for the inconvenience, but we are unable to process your request at this time. Our engineers have been notified of this problem and will work to resolve it.
I have been briefly looking around for other similar blog hosting sites and find myself with not enough time to keep looking. So this is it, WordPress. At least for now!
