How to block R rated users from "liking" my G rated blog

    I doubt this is even possible, but I am posting for the children's book market, and this morning a woman in black lace in very provocative poses "liked" my post. Implied sex with stuffed animals does not belong anywhere near my blog.
    I know I can block her from commenting, but can I also block her from liking? Would I have to turn off the "like" button completely?

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

  2. See here > Settings > Discussion and scroll way down to "Maximum Rating" and choose G — Suitable for all audiences and then click "save changes".

  3. I know I can block her from commenting, but can I also block her from liking? Would I have to turn off the "like" button completely?

    We cannot block like button spammers. All we can do is disable the like button for all visitors.

    Thanks for replying timethief, however I already had that set. I am guessing there is no way to selectively block another blogger from clicking like. I don't like the idea that someone looking at my post could see who was liking it and, well. . . associate me with that person.

  5. P.S. I disabled hovercard display as well, after I experienced a "working girl" like spammer.

    Ah, that is a great idea. It's hard to see those tiny gravatars. Thanks!

    Yep, worked like a charm.

  8. Yay! Happy blogging. :)
