Monday Peeve 6th December

Paula Light gives us the opportunity to rant and I am taking advantage today.
Every day for the past couple of weeks I have a new follower who I delete…. every day.
He has popped up umpteen times before too, and each time I have deleted him.
He appears to be a business man and seems to have several handles judging by his picture and the names of ‘blogs’ he owns.
As with all new followers, I like to look them up and get a feel for who they are.
None of this guy’s sites exist.
It appears he may be purely piggybacking on my blog to increase his WP reputation and I resent it.
He may have ‘liked’ once or twice, but he never comments. He just ‘follows’.
You know who you are DK.
Please. Leave me alone.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    How irritating for you

    A stalker!! Too bad there isn’t a way to “block” people!

    How do you delete followers? I have some I need to delete that are definitely businesses!
    sorry he’s pestering you!

    • He was back again today. PITA.
      I delete them via the stats page. There’s a ‘followers’ button on the top right and the drop down menu shows you who they are, so I remove him.

  5. Thanks for the info on that follower’s option. I black list my trolls, but never have had one (well one) who has been so tenacious. There is a blogger who seems to be extremely right wing who keeps trying to interact with me. She’ll pop up under a variation of her original blog name (on my blocked list) every now and then. The last time she pestered me for two weeks and now she’s dropped off. I’m hoping she gone for good. We got into a bit of a slanging match about Christianity in the first place and that’s when the block went into effect. Overly pious asshats who see no opinion but their own as being ‘right” aren’t welcome. I hope your troll drowns in a virtual lake. Can you report him to WP for harassment?

    • He’s not actually harassing me, just keeps following me (again today and deleted so obviously didn’t read my peeve post) . He doesn’t comment or actually do anything, just an annoying boomerang who can’t take a hint. Ho hum.
