DELETE MY ENTIRE ACCOUNT
Have a look at the comments I tested with a new blog I’m going to start later. It can be found here:
If you re-used the same email address again after clearing cookies, you can get the same cookies back again. Need to clear cookies just before switching to use a different email and be sure to never use the email you signed up to WP with when commenting on WP.com hosted blogs.
You might want to use “+wp” if the “+ extension” thing works for your email.
I get it, will give it a try today
unfortunetly that doesn’t work for my main email, though I suppose this way I could use the gmail account, I was trying to get rid of it though….
BUT, either I cleared the right cookie, or gravatar/wordpress finally got their systems to accept the change in emails because I can comment using my main email.
I still want my account(s!) deleted, cause this is ridiculous, but at least now I can comment….
shit for wordpress blog I wan’t to delete my account and it’s going around around and around with questions. And your are sitting there doing nothing at all
and you see in this silly way doing this you will lost customers!
Well, ironically, you’re complaining about the fact you cannot cease to be a customer no matter what you do.
Is it fixed now ? Still have to log in apparently if someone wants to comment :-(
@argone, yes, if someone attempts to use an email address that is associated either with a gravatar or wordpress.com account, they will have to be signed in to that account in order to comment. It sucks, but that is the way it is.
Bumping this thread. I STILL want all my WP.com and Gravatar accounts deleted and I STILL haven’t recieved any response from my attempts to contact Gravatar support, and Automattic support, and I STILL cannot contact WP.com support. Yah, This makes me REALLY want to move my blog over here, uhuh.
I have flagged this thread for a Staff response.
Since we don’t want other people to have your username in the future, we don’t delete usernames (they are kept so they cannot be recycled). For more information, please see
I also see you’ve already deleted your blog(s). I do have a few suggestions for you if you really want to scrub the account:
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 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) To learn how to hide your Gravatar profile, please read “How do I hide my profile?” section of the help page:
