I would like to delete one of my accounts

  1. I set up a new account to create a new blog. I had forgotten I had a blog years ago and realized I had two accounts when I signed in with my yahoo account (my old one) instead of using gmail (my new one). I have transferred my new blog to my old account and would like to delete the new account. Can anyone help me with that?
    Thanks!

  2. You can edit and/or delete all your personal data and/or replace the email address at any time here at WordPress.com.

    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”:

    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:

    IMPORTANT NOTE: Deleting blog content does not remove any indexed content from appearing in 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.
