Strange emails following my blog - spam or programs?

  1. Since yesterday i got few weird emails beings subscribed to my blog, is any way to remove them from my followers, block them? They appear not be from normal people, more like a spam, program, something and i'm not comfortable to post anything that they will get . First i got one but now every few hours there is another one....
    Any help?

  2. We cannot block or delete subscribers from public blogs. Everyone on the internet can view and follow any public blog. That is in fact what the public designation means.

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

  3. Yes, i'm aware of that ;) Thanks for replying so fast ;)
    I posted the emails in questions but it's says they are reducted.
    I very much suspect being them not human or not good intention, have seen similar address and comments that Aksimet stopped and flagged as spam. Now i'm getting worried, emails have very weird extension .pl, weird letters ..and pretty much nothing you can even pronounce.
    First it was one but now i have 4 of them already following my blog.
