    I deleted my blog and disabled notifications, but I am still getting notifications of people liking my posts, even though the blog containing those posts no longer exists. So if I try to click on the link from the email to adjust my notifications, I get a “blog is not available” message. Why am I still getting these messages?

    In response to the bot. It is not for a particular blog, since I have deleted the blog in question. I no longer have a blog with WP.com, but I still get the notifications for the deleted blog.

    This problem is still ongoing. I would appreciate some response on this matter.

    Here are brief instructions for unsubscribing
    1. click the “unsubscribe” link on the emails of the posts received at the very bottom of the emails.
    2. go here > http://wordpress.com/#!/read/edit/ locate and click the “x” next to any blog there to unfollow it and no longer receive posts in the Reader or by email.

    Have you done those?

    1. If you are referring to the “modify notifications” option (there’s no unsubscribe option on the email), then, yes, I’ve done all that, as mentioned in the title of this issue. Clicking on that gives me the message “blendervixen.wordpress.com is no longer available” (since I have deleted this blog)
    2. I am not following any blogs.

    What’s the address of the deleted blog? of what’s the link of the post you get notifications from?

    Sorry for the inconvenience.

    The blog is (or rather, WAS):

    blendervixen.wordpress.com

    I can’t give you the link because out of frustration, I’ve deleted the received emails notifying me of the likes, reblogs, etc. from the non-existent blog. When I get the next one (and I probably will get one), I’ll put it up here.

    It’s possible that they were able to like the blog posts through the WordPress.com reader as your blog was still cached there. I can confirm your blog has been deleted and you’re not subscribed to anything.

    Feel free to contact us if your receive new notifications in the coming few days.

    Just got two notifications through today. This is getting a bit silly now, deleting a blog should delete all trace, not leaving bits and pieces behind that I can’t clean up…
