    Do be aware that no one can “get” to you unless you allow them to. You can set your blog comments up to be moderated and simply click “trash” on every comment you receive from the party in question. You can also use the Comment Blacklist.

    The Discussion Settings are used to control how visitors and other blogs interact with your blog. See here for instructions and information. > http://en.support.wordpress.com/settings/discussion-settings/

    Thank you timethief, these comments are very personal in nature and I know who this person is. It’s a family member, and I am not longer in contact with them or spending time with them. I have been trashing the comments. I will look at the links you sent me.. Thank again for your help!! :)

    The other thing to remember is that they might try using a different email address and/or username to try and get through, so keep an eye out.

    I agree with TSP. Trolls are persistent and do tend to change IPs and email addresses frequently so be vigilant.

    Thank you for your help. That’s is what I noticed the person that sent the message’s has been sending the comment’s from a differnt address each time… Trolls is the right thing to call them!! I’ll have to keep watching out for them..

    But still, blocking email-adresses should come to use.

    As mentioned above, you can block them from commenting by adding the email address to your comment blacklist at Settings -> Discussion in your Dashboard.

    Getting an new email address only takes moments so you will have to be vigilant, and setting up Comment Moderation as well as Blacklisting arehelpful in that regard. You’re welcome and best wishes with your blog. :)
