    You cannot remove ot block any subscribers to a public blog.
    As long as your site is publicly available on the web, there is no way to block specific people from seeing it. Note that there is no limit for how many people can subscribe to your site. You may want to check out the privacy options http://en.support.wordpress.com/settings/privacy-settings/ Read this about public blogs that become private blogs > Blog Privacy and Subscribers > http://wpcommaven.wordpress.com/2011/09/05/blog-privacy-and-subscribers/

    We WordPress.com blog owners have full control to approve, delete, or edit the comments left on our blogs. But we control who can comment > Settings > Discussion, and we can enable or disable comments on any page or post, and we can moderate comments.

    For trolls, you can "blacklist" them at Settings > Discussion toward the bottom of that page. Enter their email address, their username, and if they included it, their website. That will automatically send them to moderation so that their comments do not appear on the blog. Do note though that if they are determined, they can use a different email address or username to get around that. Also, do not put their IP address in the blacklist. IP addresses are no longer unique, and you might end up blocking legitimate visitors. Also, all they would have to do is go to a wi-fi hot spot, or connect via a different ISP and they could get around that.

    One other thing I would suggest is to set your blog so that first time commenters are held in moderation till approved, then from that point forward they will not need approval. Settings > Discussion. The next step on that of course is to set it so that all comments are held in moderation until approved. That way you are in control, and they might just get tired and go elsewhere after a while.

  3. My problem isn't with trolls or spammers, but rather someone who wishes to be unsubscribed but can't figure out how. Isn't there some way I can unsubscribe for them? I don't see anything in the UI for this.

    This is a person subscribed by email.

    Thanks,
