Can't delete blog

  1. I wanted to delete my WordPress account, but aparently an account cannot be deleted. It would have been nice to have known this before I activated my account. Anyway I tried to delete my blog, but I didn't get an e-mail to confirm it, so it doesn't work. What can I do to delete as much as possible on WordPress? I really want everything deleted...

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

  2. Please check you email client spam filter for the confirmation email and I'll tag this thread for a Staff follow-up on that issue.

  3. After you have successfully deleted the blog please read what follows:

    All you were required to provide to register an account here was an email address that can be replaced at any time.

    Any personal information that you voluntarily posted can also be removed at any time.

    Although username accounts are not deleted, so you cannot be impersonated and have your reputation affected by anyone registering the same username in the future, there are steps you can take that amount to removing all personal information and result in leaving only a throwaway email address behind. http://en.support.wordpress.com/deleting-accounts/

    1. You can go to My Account->Edit Profile and remove all data except the account name and an email address. Create a throwaway email address and change the account email to that throwaway address. This only leaves the username behind.

    2. To unsubscribe from email sent to you from WordPress.com, go here and click on “Block all subscription emails from WordPress.com”:
    http://wordpress.com/#!/following/subsettings/

    3. To ensure the account is locked up tightly, visit this site, generate a password of 15-20 characters, and change the account password to it:
    http://www.thebitmill.com/tools/password.html

    4. To hide your Gravatar profile log into Gravatar. You can click and hide your profile using the link in the bottom right corner of that page. That link will only be visible to you as the person who owns that account/profile.

    IMPORTANT NOTE: Deleting blogs and/or blog content does not remove any indexed items from the SERPs (search engine page results). Google and Bing only clear their caches of deleted indexed content that produces a 404 (page not found) every 3 - 6 months.

  4. I couldn't find the confirmation email in my spam either...

  5. Not to worry as Staff can and will assist with deleting the blog. Please post the URL of the blog you want deleted and note that has to be done prior to what I posted in the second comment I made above.

  6. http://bhjghjk.wordpress.com/
