    Hi everybody!
    I am new here. I have 9 follower who follow my blog but all of them are via email.

    I know all of them in real life. With one of them (one of these nine) I am no longer friend and we no longer have good friendship/relation. I want to keep my blog public because I do have some visits but I want to delete this person’s emails from the emails that receive every new post of mine. I searched the support section and Google and I cound’t find a way how to achieve this. I do see all of the emails of followers but I can’t do anything with them.

    Please, help me! Thank you ib advance for the feedback !!! :)

    The blog I need help with is



    We cannot block or delete subscribers from public blogs. However, please read this about public blogs that become private blogs > Blog Privacy and Subscribers >

    Note that you have complete control 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, as for many years now ISPs have been placing hundreds of us in the same IP block 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.
