All they need to do is subscribe to your blog’s RSS feed and get updated on your latest Post without visiting your site. And yes I guess having an unwanted subscriber is like seeing someone two feet outside the restraining zone distance in the court order watching you.
Given the nature of the internet other than having a completely Private blog or no blog at all your options are limited.
my stalker is not internet savvy at all and wouldn’t know how to subscribe via RSS (because she doesn’t know what RSS is), therefore email subscription is far more easier for her and is something she can understand and use (and she did). I would love to make use of this little opening (that some people may not be RSS educated), and be at least capable of deleting them from my blog’s email subscription list. In my part of the world, internet is relatively new, and I might be one of the most developed users. So… to make a long story short, someone like me would realllly benefit from the option of “delete follower.”
I don’t know how we can petition WordPress on this matter. Hello there, dear WordPress; are you hearing me?
Allow me to be clear about what these forums are all about. This is a peer support forum where Volunteers like myself answer support questions posted by other members. I answered this question fully previously. If you would like to send your personal feedback to Staff they will be available on January 2nd.
You “full” answer is valid and I read it; it basically states the fact that on “public” blogs one cannot delete followers. What I am hoping for is change.
I am sure, that as a WordPress blogger (who probably has equal rights to express and question like any volunteer) one can express their opinion as a user; one can verily point out an issue that seems to be shared by others.
I think that feedback is exactly what these forums are for (in addition to peer-to-peer support, which I believe should not involve a hierarchy of any sort), and I am positive WordPress staff closely monitor these forums to see what new trends (or issues) are surfacing, so they can improve their interface, their service, and everything in between. I am merely making my voice heard, and I am sorry that a “full” answer won’t suffice.
I don’t believe for single moment that Staff sit around and monitor every thread here on these forums to glean feedback. As best as I can tell they do not have idle time on their hands.
This thread is in the Support Forum and I answered the questions being posed correctly.
If the correct answers don’t suffice for you then your can express that directly to Staff by using the link provided above. Or alternatively, you can start an Ideas Forum thread (Ideas and suggestions for WP.com)and post your ideas for changes and or improvements in it.
OK, I shared my “idea” – which turned out to be really long, over here
So, if you agree that WordPress needs to add an “unfollow” button that allows us to delete unwanted email (or blog) subscribers/followers, please go ahead and support the idea at the link provided above.
I have someone on my followers list who recently deleted her blog yet she remains on my followers list. I would like to remove this person because she is not really a follower anymore. Can someone help?
Where is it written that to follow a blog, you have to have a blog?
Many people that do not even have wordpress.com accounts follow blogs here.
They just use their Dashboards as readers. It’s quite common.
I want an unfollow button to deleted a follower! And also for a follower it should be possible to choose for unfollow. Please support, make it possible.
And also for a follower it should be possible to choose for unfollow.
This is already availabe. When you are on a blog you click the follow blog link to follow and you click that same link to un-follow. http://en.support.wordpress.com/following/#unfollowing-a-blog
If you don’t want to continue to receive the emails of new posts you click “unsubscribe” link in the email at the bottom. Or you click the Manage Delivery Settings link under Read Blogs to change your default email delivery methods for all the blogs you follow.
