    Hi, i realised that I have 3 site followers/ subscriptions. Is it possible to delete them once and for all? because I do not feel comfortable that whenever i post a new entry, they will be sent a copy of my post. Thanks.

    Hello,

    I don’t think that you can remove subscribers. However, if you’re concerned about privacy you can always make your blog password protected and manually allow certain WordPress.com users to access it. You can also password protect individual posts. Here are some articles that talk about privacy and password protection: http://en.support.wordpress.com/settings/privacy-settings/ and http://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/post-visibility/.

    if you are referring to a public blog The short answer to your question is “no”. As long as your site is publicly available on the web, there is no way to block specific people from seeing it. Note also that anyone can subscribe to a public blog and read the posts in a feedreader. However, you have complete control comment moderation. If your blog is public others can, of course, read the posts in it unless they are password protected as suggested above. They can submit comments but you can Moderate all comments and choose which ones to approve or not. 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.

    Lastly, note that you can disable the “follow” button that appears to logged out users. Go to your Dashboard > Click on Settings > then Reading, then > Email.
