delete profile?

  1. Hi, I would like to know how to delete this profile? I have started a new blog, had kind of forgotten this one existed. I would like this profile deleted.

  2. Here's how to deactivate your account:
    Although username accounts are not deleted, so you cannot be impersonated and have your reputation affected by anyone registering the same username in the future, there are steps you can take that amount to removing all personal information and result in leaving only a throwaway email address behind. http://en.support.wordpress.com/deleting-accounts/

    1. You can go to My Account->Edit Profile at https://wordpress.com/me/account 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”:
    https://wordpress.com/settings/notifications/

    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. To hide your Gravatar profile, login and on the bottom right hand corner of your Gravatar profile page you will find a "hide" button visible only to you that you can click. http://en.gravatar.com/support/profile-privacy

    IMPORTANT NOTE: Deleting blogs and/or blog content or making the site private does not remove indexed content from the SERPs (search engine page results) and we cannot help with that. Google and Bing only clear their caches of deleted indexed content that produces a 404 (page not found) every 3 - 6 months. To completely remove an entire page from Google search results after it produces a 404 (page not found):
