I want to completely delete the account associated with the email address [removed from public forum] and username [removed from public forum].
Reason: I have a separate wordpress account with email [removed from public forum] and username [removed from public forum]. I made a mistake earlier and set up 2 separate accounts.
I want to free up the hotmail email account to use to comment on other blogs. Every time I try to comment on someone’s blog using my hotmail email and while using my regular laptop, it gives me an error message that I’m not logged into that account!
So, PLEASE let me delete it!!!
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 WordPress.com, go here and click on “Block all subscription emails from WordPress.com”:
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.
