Not Useful

  1. I would like to delete my account, because I believe for current moment, I have not got enough budget to pay and get a full access to all features, but if I do not do it, there are lots of restrictions, that will ruin the blog that I have got my mind. So if we consider that paradox, for current situation wordpress is not useful for me. I would rather us Medium with ad-free instead of using, wordpress with bunch of pop-ups.

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

  2. wordpress with bunch of pop-ups

    Popups on WordPress.com! That sounds like an infected browser issue or malware on your computer to me. If the ads you see are found at the end of blog posts then provided you see this small About These Ads link http://en.wordpress.com/about-these-ads/ what you are seeing is ads placed by WordPress.com .

    Any other ads you see are not places by WordPress.com. If you see any then you have an adware or malware issue on your browser or computer. These ads are sometimes caused by malware or a virus, but more often it is due to a browser extension or toolbar that you may have installed in your browser. These sites have further explanation and suggestions for eliminating the ads:

  3. Here's how to deactivate your account:
    All you were required to provide to register an account here was an email address that can be replaced at any time.

    Any personal information that you voluntarily posted can also be removed at any time.

    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”:
    https://wordpress.com/settings/notifications/

    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:

    4. To hide your Gravatar profile, login and on the bottom right hand corner of your Gravatar profile page you will find a "hide" button visible only to you that you can click.

  4. Thanks

  5. If you are experiencing pop-ups your browser or computer are infected.
