    There is a blog on ****.wordpress.com on which I left some comments a few years ago. I would like to have these comments deleted.

    Now, as far as I know, I cannot do this myself. If I can, please tell me how to do it.

    My conclusion is that I have to contact the blog owner. The problem is, that he did not leave any contact information, like an email address or a contact form. Now, how do I contact him?

    I know that WordPress has his email address since you must give one at the registration. However, if there is no way to give that email address to me, can I get the WordPress Admins to delete my comments? How would I do that?

    Thank you in advance for your support.

    Hi
    If you are still able to post comments there, you can try leaving a short comment asking how to contact them directly.

    Hi Dave, thank you for your answer.

    I’m not sure if that will work. In fact, my last comment (from 2 years ago) was “hey, are you still here?”. He did not answer.

    If there is no better way, I will try contacting him that way. I think that the chances of that working are very low, however.

    Staff will not provide any personal (contact) information to you as that would breach the privacy policy.

    Thank you for your answer, timethief. Is is possible that staff will forward a message to the blog owner on my behalf?

    No, Staff will not do that for you – sorry.

    Thank you for your response, timethief.

    In that case, I require staff to delete the comments on the blog directly, since the blog owner cannot be reached. How do I submit such a request to staff?

    You can email them but you will not succeed. To do what you request would mean that Staff would have to violate WordPress.COM privacy policy & that would mean they would be subject to losing their jobs.

    P.S. Allow me to add, that if Staff here or anywhere else I have an account had the audacity to violate my blog and do what you request, I would publish the most scathing post ever, promote it through all social media sites, and then leave the site permanently.
