I’ve just finished copying my previous MOOCs Posterous Space to WordPress.
Unlike what had been suggested by Posterous, importing an XML file with its backup to WordPress, I didn’t succeed and decided to copy post by post, since Posterous is closing down by the end of this month (30th April 2013).
I think that these practices of closing down, leaving no access, for reasons of business, are very unethical. I understand that we are using a service for free but still what the users have made available belongs to them and should be preserved.
It has been a huge waste of time, since I had also another space in Posterous with contents regarding my Ph.D course.
I’m really angry at Posterous!
