Spam email address followers

  1. I've had a flurry of obviously spam email addresses subscribe to my site for automatic updates (all hotmail addresses with random numbers & letters as username, appearing within minutes of each other). I'm not sure what nefarious reasons they have, but I'm sure they'll be gaming something as a result. It would be nice to be able to delete those accounts.

    The blog I need help with is aspire2025.org.nz.

  2. 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. http://en.support.wordpress.com/settings/discussion-settings/#comment-moderation

  3. Hi timethief,
    Thanks for your help. We want the blog to remain public, and have comment moderation settings that suit us in place, so will just have to live with the spambots getting notifications. Like I said, it's not that this affects our site, but that I'm sure the people that set them up are up to no good!
    Cheers,
    Ninya

  4. You're welcome and best wishes.
