Hi, Timethief, thanks. Well, the particular bad spirit I'd like to hear less from might not go to those lengths, to subscribe through a feedreader. So let me try to ask again, if I cancel the Blog Subscription widget or if I simply remove this person from the list of subscribers, in either case, does WordPress send them an email notifying them of this action on my part?
I have counted myself lucky to not have a large readership, at least among some elements of the population. I'll give an example: during the campaign, I posted a legitimate critical piece on Obama, and from one site in the UK I got commented an incredibly racist response that made me regret membership in the species, let alone blogging. It literally made me cry. Sometimes small is just fine and even a way to survive.
