Can you help me get rid of my word press account?

  1. I signed up by mistake thinking it would allow me to comment on my uni's student news paper site. It did not and now i do not want to be linked to this account or website in any way as it is a hassle and i would rather you not to have my information.

    The support section says accounts can not be deleted but this seems ridiculous. It also gives long winded instructions on getting rid of certain things, such as email subscriptions, but i just want to not have this account any more.

    What can i do?

    I was not warned at any point in signing up that i could not delete my account?

    The blog I need help with is

  2. Provided you are logged in under the username account that registered the blog you can delete the blog by using these instructions.
    Please note that deleted blog URLs are not recycled.
    Username accounts are not deleted but there are steps you can take that amount to removing all personal information and result in leaving only a throwaway email address behind.

    1. You can go to My Account->Edit Profile and remove all data except the account name and an email address. Create a throwaway email address and change the account email to that throwaway address. This only leaves the username behind.

    2. To unsubscribe from email sent to you from, go here and click on “Block all subscription emails from”:!/following/subsettings/

    3. To ensure the account is locked up tightly, visit this site, generate a password of 15-20 characters, and change the account password to it:

    4. While you cannot completely delete your Gravatar profile, you can remove all of your profile information easily through the "Edit My Profile" page here:

    You can also hide your Gravatar profile from external access. Visit your profile page (click your name in the top navigation of the website), then click the "Hide My Profile" link in the bottom, right-hand corner.
