    Hello,

    I would like to know whether it is possible to delete subscriptions to your blog; subscriptions of people of whom you don’t want that they follow your blog.

    I don’t see how to do this and it is really very annoying…

    Thank you,
    demob

    You did not specify a blog address or reason for posting when you created this topic.

    This support forum is for blogs hosted at WordPress.com. If your question is about a self-hosted WordPress blog then you’ll find help at the WordPress.org forums.

    If you don’t understand the difference between WordPress.com and WordPress.org, you may find this information helpful.

    If you forgot to include a link to your blog, you can reply and include it below. It’ll help people to answer your question.

    We cannot delete or block subscribers from subscribing to a public blog. If you enable blog subscriptions by email on a public blog there is no way to block any subscribers, other than changing your blog’s visibility to “private”. Moreover, anyone can subscribe to a public blog’s feed. However, you do have complete control over approving comments. I suggest that you use Comment Moderation. http://en.support.wordpress.com/settings/discussion-settings/ Also note on this page > Settings > Discussion you have the ability to comment blacklist. This will send all comments from that individual directly into your spam queue. http://en.support.wordpress.com/settings/discussion-settings/#comment-blacklist But be cautious about using it as ISPs place hundreds of us in the same IP to save money, so you could end up affecting more than a single person.

    I don’t understand why WordPress doesn’t offer the possibility to delete subscribers…

    I don’t understand why WordPress doesn’t offer the possibility to delete subscribers..

    Public blogs are “public” and any public blog that offers email and/or RSS Feed subscriptions offers them to all. Anyone can subscribe to an RSS Feed and use a feedreader to read posts and comments on any public blog. Any deleted email subscriber could simply subscribe again as we can all get a new email address and/or IP very easily.
