    I don't want someone to follow my blog.
    How do I delete a follower?

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

  2. That's not possible. 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.

    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.

  3. Hello,

    I understand that the blog content is public, but I find it strange that I get a new follower every day from an address that looks suspicious to me. Can you please look into it? I am concerned it is kind of on-line stalking or phishing. Thanks.

  4. I tagged this thread for a Staff investigation. They can view the redacted email addresses we cannot view. Please subscribe to it so you are notified when they respond and be patient while waiting.

  5. terrafina, it may be a legitimate person, or it may not. There's really no way for someone to maliciously read a blog. They signed up to receive your posts and are receiving them, so technically they're a follower.
