I'm confused at to why we're talking about ENWorld being on that list; I don't see anywhere where Morrus stated or even implied that they were. It feels like people are jumping to conclusions...
The OP quotes Morrus. Obviously the quote doesn't mean he is saying EnWorld is blacklisted, but it could look like that. And I believe the discussion is more generally about WotC having a blacklist.

Now that fact the Morrus hasn't clarified the statement makes one question it to some degree.

EDIT: Personally I think having blacklist is fine. The issue is how you use such a list and how one gets on or off the list.

Very true

... and yet Morrus posted 3 times before you did on this thread, had ample opportunity to dismiss the rumor. I mean... we all make mistakes, and maybe it was just that, but Morrus has fueled said rumor by not taking said opportunity to clear thing up.

I'd be surprised if ENWorld was on Wizards' blacklist, since we know folks who worked on Radiant Citadel were acknowledging posts here. Though I suppose those were freelancers, not Wizards employees...
 






While not about WotC, anyone here who has people on Ignore, or does so on other sites or social media, has a personal blacklist for those sites. And for another comparison, Colin Kapernick is blacklisted by the NFL, or some team would have signed him long ago. The first could be an example of a good use of a blacklist, while the other is a bad use. But either way, blacklists have to follow a fine line between being preventative/warning of bad actors and bullying. If WotC has one, I would think it would be the kind used to warn other companies about anti-inclusive asshats that don't deserve space in something that is only trying to be more open and inclusive.

Because I remember when ENWorld got interviews and such, and Morrus has complained about the lack of communication from WotC before. I don't know when that stopped, because I was an irregular lurker for 12-15 years.
I remember that the D&D team used to more involved in EnWorld; however, I believe that change occurred before the "current regime." I also don't know that they are on a blacklist either. Though I do find it interesting that EnWorld reports about D&D stuff, but doesn't get the interviews and early PR info that some sites do. So maybe it started with an earlier regime and has continued?
