I want to delete my account.

  1. I want to remove the account because I am using the same account name under
    Blog url:

  2. Although username accounts are not deleted at please note the following:

    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 unsubscribe from email sent to you from, go here and click on “Block all subscription emails from”:!/following/subsettings/

    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. While you cannot completely delete your Gravatar profile, you can remove all of your profile information easily through the "Edit My Profile" page here:

    You can also hide your Gravatar profile from external access. Visit your profile page (click your name in the top navigation of the website), then click the "Hide My Profile" link in the bottom, right-hand corner.

  3. Thanks timethief!

    I'm also having difficulties trying to figure out how I can upload a gravatar image for my profile. This is the reason why I signed up with gravatar. I have to log in through and through this method, I can't seem to link gravatar through my wordpress blog this way.

    Any suggestions?

  4. You're welcome.

  5. If you delete the blog, your gravatar won't be associated with because you have no blog here. You will have to do your editing on the personal page at
