  2. Why would you choose to let a troll get to you? We are all responsible for our own emotional health. It takes just as much energy to take offense as it does to give offense. If you do not take offense when something you do not appreciate is said — the statement and the person who delivered it have no power. You have complete control over comment moderation.

  3. We cannot block or delete subscribers from public blogs. The only way your can control who views your WordPress.com blog is to make the visibility of the blog private. http://en.support.wordpress.com/settings/privacy-settings/

    However, we can set up comment moderation on our blogs. http://en.support.wordpress.com/settings/discussion-settings/#comment-moderation

    If your blog is public others can, of course, read it. They can submit comments but you can Moderate all comments and choose which ones to approve or not.

    For trolls, you can “blacklist” them at Settings > Discussion toward the bottom of that page. Enter their email address, their username, and if they included it, their website. That will automatically send them to moderation so that their comments do not appear on the blog. Do note though that if they are determined, they can use a different email address or username to get around that. Also, do not put their IP address in the blacklist. IP addresses are no longer unique, and you might end up blocking legitimate visitors. Also, all they would have to do is go to a wi-fi hot spot, or connect via a different ISP and they could get around that.

    One other thing I would suggest is to set your blog so that first time commenters are held in moderation till approved, then from that point forward they will not need approval. Settings > Discussion. The next step on that of course is to set it so that all comments are held in moderation until approved. That way you are in control, and they might just get tired and go elsewhere after a while.

    You choose how to respond to other people and what they may say about you. If you believe the words of this person constitute criminal harassment and/or defamation of charter then consult the police and an attorney.
