Blocking a follower

  1. I know that it is not possible to block followers. However, I believe in the near future there should be an option to be able to. Recently, I've had a pornography blogger follow me and that is VERY unnerving.
    Just a suggestion. I didn't even realize that pornography was allowed on WordPress.

    The blog I need help with is claudiabette.wordpress.com.

  2. Pornography is not allowed of free hosted WordPress.com blogs.
    Report the blog > http://en.support.wordpress.com/report-blogs/

    We cannot block or delete subscribers from public blogs. Everyone on the internet can view and follow any public blog. That is in fact what the public designation means and anyone anyone with internet access can follow your public blog's RSS Feed.

    You can change your blog visibility to "private" http://en.support.wordpress.com/settings/privacy-settings/ Please read this about public blogs that become private blogs > Blog Privacy and Subscribers > http://wpcommaven.wordpress.com/2011/09/05/blog-privacy-and-subscribers/

    Note that you have complete control over everything that's posted to your blog via comment moderation

    You don't have to post any comment on your blog. Delete troll posts http://dailypost.wordpress.com/2013/03/27/how-to-starve-a-troll/
    and mark only spam as spam. http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/2013/01/24/mark-only-spam-as-spam/

  3. Thanks for reply. I understand about blogs being public. I guess the pornography thing was what kinda threw me off. I will report it. Thanks!

  4. If the blog is being hosted by WordPress.com then yes - report it. You're welcome.

  5. yup, it most certainly is and I have sent the report. Thanks!
