    I do not want an account under wordpress anymore. There is no way the contract is legal and binding - it's a BLOG service, for crying out loud. If I don't want to have an account with them anymore, they should not be able to stop me from leaving. So how does that happen?

    Thank you.

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

  2. No one is stopping you from leaving. You can delete all content and just not log in again.

    The account however cannot be deleted as it is the property of WP.

  3. Provided your are the Admin of thee blog in question and are logged in under the exact same username account that registered the blog you can delete it. NOTE that URLs are not recycled here.

    Username accounts are not deleted but there are steps you can take that amount to removing all personal information and result in leaving only a throwaway email address behind.

    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:

    4. While you cannot completely delete your Gravatar profile, you can remove all of your profile information easily through the "Edit My Profile" page here:

    You can also hide your Gravatar profile from external access. Visit your profile page (click your name in the top navigation of the website), then click the "Hide My Profile" link in the bottom, right-hand corner.
