    Harassment
    Hi, I have one person who seems without a life who is harassing me non stop on social media networks and now here. There are several nasty comments submitted that I didn't approve or delete and I woke up today to a hacking notice/password change.

    I need this person's IP address and since he's only doing this through here an social media, I don't have access to it. Whenever I block him on Twitter, he just starts up another profile. 7 so far in the last 3 days.

    I'd also like him banned. But no info comes with the comments.
    What can I do about it?
    Thank you.

    The blog I need help with is aprilhunterblog.com.

  2. WordPress will not give out that kind of information without a court order, so get one.

    I want his ip BLOCKED from my page. There doesn't seem to be a way to do that, like there is on other pages, like twitter and facebook. Unless I'm missing something?
    And this just started the other day. I don't yet have a court order. I just want him to fuck off and leave me alone and NOT be able to read anything I post.

    Simple, no?

  4. There is no way to do that on a public blog. PS whatever Facebook and Twitter say, there is no way to do that there. I routinely read the tweets of people who've blocked me.

  5. You can change your blog visibility to "private". http://en.support.wordpress.com/settings/privacy-settings/

    We cannot block or delete subscribers from public blogs. However, 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 comment moderation and comment blacklisting.

    Also note there is no upgrade you can purchase that changes what I stated above.

    I need this person's IP address ...

    Anyone can get an new IP in no time flat as you have already noted. Consult legal counsel and take legal action.

    Thank you.
    If I make it private, then that kills traffic, I'd imagine.
    Thank you for you time and responses/suggestions.
