LIKES: How to remove the gravatar

    How can I remove the gravatar for a blogger who Likes one of my posts? There seems to be no way to do this within the dashboard.

    I wish to remove that blogger as clicking onto their main blog brings up a message from my anti-virus that they are a known Dangerous Page. I do not wish to be responsible for others visiting that blogger and perhaps causing them some harm.

    This is not something new I’ve come across so far with some other WordPress bloggers, by the way! How can I make a complaint about that too?

    The blog I need help with is



    Like spam is a known issue. Unfortunately the only thing you can do at this point in time is remove Likes from the post in question (look for the Likes and Shares module in the Post Editor for that post and uncheck the box), and report the offending profile to Gravatar directly.



    Thanks justjennifer. Okay….done, but what a shame as it’s a post with the most Likes! Have noted the URL to the gravatar and will report it. May, in fact, also check out some of the Likes on my other posts that I’m not familiar with from my commenting/following adventures so far.

    Perhaps you could also move this one to the Ideas forum, as I think it is very important to be able to remove the one gravatar and leave the rest, much like deleting an offending comment. Thanks, again, for your help.



    When it comes to avatar display in comments you can control that on this page > Settings > Discussion.
    scroll down to
    An avatar is an image that follows you from weblog to weblog appearing beside your name when you comment on avatar enabled sites. Here you can enable the display of avatars for people who comment on your site.
