    Does this help? http://en.support.wordpress.com/following/#unfollow-a-blog
    There’s another way you can do this by visiting blogs you want to “unfollow” > http://en.support.wordpress.com/following/#unfollow-a-blog You go to the blog in question and click the unfollow link on the Admin bar.

    I may be blind, but I can’t find the Admin bar when I go into the individual blogs. I’m also, not actually subscribed to them. Is there any way to get the grey x in the Reader to work so I can unsubscribe from there? Is it possible to contact WordPress?

    Thanks!

    Are the blogs in question not hosted by WordPress.com?

    One is, but I don’t think the others are. Does it matter? Not only can I not delete them, I can’t update my notification settings on them either. So annoying.

    Would you please try removing them with a different browser, like Firefox or Chrome?

    I just tried removing them on Firefox (I had been using Safari) and still no luck. They just won’t go away.

    Which versions of Firefox and Safari have you tried?

    Ok, I made some changes on this end. They should be gone now. Would you please confirm?

    No, they’re still there. :-( I even tried closing my browser and going back in. Reader is the first thing that pops up when I log into WordPress and the blogs are there…front and center.

    Here’s the other odd thing. When I go into Blogs I Follow from my dashboard, I see this:

    You are not actively following any blogs.

    If you are expecting to see blogs that you are following here please check that you used the same email address and that they are not still pending.

    Are you receiving any of these via email? If so, there will be a Subscription Management link at the bottom.

    Does that work?

    I feel kind of honored that my seemingly simple issue has become so special. :-)

    Nope, I’m not receiving any of them by email. And I don’t have an RSS reader set up on my MAC at home either. So other than me having typed these in to WordPress on my own at some point (which I would think would make it even easier to delete them since there’s not true commitment there), I get no updates on them. (Other than the Reader area on WordPress that has started this whole conversation.)

    Is it possible for me to give permission for WordPress to just go into my account and delete them once and for all?

    Yep, that’s what I though I tried earlier.

    Ok, I tried again via a different method. Any luck?

    Nope. They’re still there. I can’t believe this. I guess at the end of the day they aren’t hurting anything. The thing is, I did want to use this feature and add blogs I follow to my blog. Thank you so much for trying. Any other ideas?

    I don’t have any more ideas myself, so I’m passing this on the developers. I’ll let you know as soon as I hear something.
