    I want to permanently remove whitebuck.wordpress.com and I am aware I can never get its content or its address back.

    If you could take a sentence to tell us why you’re deleting this site we would really appreciate it. -I believe that my WordPress blog site and most others are a complete waste of time and energy. Serving primarily as consumerist, data and personal info. mining or collecting vehicle.

    Did not work from my Dashboard as described, I never received conformation email. Please DELETE -whitebuck.wordpress.com

    Permanently delete the site and all content

    Please read carefully. You are trying to permanently delete whitebuck.wordpress.com.

    If you do not want whitebuck.wordpress.com to exist any more, you can delete it. This CAN NOT be undone. It is permanent.
    All of your posts and data, and this site’s address (whitebuck.wordpress.com) will be gone forever.
    If you are sure… YES!

    The blog I need help with is whitebuck.wordpress.com.

    I am having the same issue being unable to delete my blog/account. I have tried four times over the span of weeks, following the directions but never receive a confirmation email. I have tried changing the email address associated with my blog, but still no deletion confirmation. I receive other emails from WordPress just fine, but not the delete email.

    Don’t panic. Simply make the blog private while you wait. To change blog visibility to Private go to Dashboard > Settings > Reading scroll to Blog Visibility and choose option 3 . See the guide here http://en.support.wordpress.com/settings/privacy-settings/

    Then look in your email client spam filter and I’ll tag this thread for a Staff follow-up. Please subscribe to the thread so you are notified when they respond and please be patient while waiting.

    Hi there,

    Please note that WordPress.com accounts are permanent. You can find more info about that here:

    http://en.support.wordpress.com/deleting-accounts/

    If you are trying to unsubscribe from emails sent to you from WordPress.com, go to Email Delivery Settings and click on “Block Emails”:

    http://wordpress.com/#!/read/subsettings/

    Here’s a few suggestions for you if you’d like to scrub the account:

    1) You can also go here to 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 will only leave the username behind:

    http://wordpress.com/#!/settings/

    2) 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:

    3) While you cannot completely delete your Gravatar profile, you can remove all of your profile information easily through the “Edit My Profile” page here:

    http://en.gravatar.com/profiles/edit/?noclose#about-you

    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.
