Follower VS. Stalker


Has anyone else ever had the problem of a follower becoming a bit of a stalker?  A person that gets WAY too involved in your posts, your life, etc?  Why won’t WordPress make it so that we can BLOCK an inappropriate follower?

    I’m sorry that happened. I wondered if it was something like that. I remember that you did not post a link to this blog but instead asked people to contact you.


  3. I’m sorry you lost your previous blog to that nonsense. I’m happy to have found your blog and will enjoy reading.


  4. I thought we did have that capability – I need to check into it


    • Thanks Paul, but I looked. Under the FAQ, it will tell you that you cannot. It stinks. That’s why I started this new blog. I lost a bunch of followers, my awards, etc. But I just didn’t see a way around it.


  5. I think that is a bit creepy. I wish we did have a block option for that sort of stuff. No it has not happened to me.


    • Yes, it is Creepy. That’s why I started a new blog. I tried to block him, but WordPress does not have that option. It stinks. I lost a bunch of followers, my awards, etc. But I just didn’t see an alternative.
