Delete/ Block Likes of Unwanted Users?

Does anyone know of a way to delete likes without removing the “Like” option entirely? I get 2-3 new followers a week that (I believe) are only following/ liking for publicity. Money making schemes, etc.

My policy (after visiting three or so of these followers) is that unless I know the person I don’t even visit their site without an approved comment first, but I’m wondering if I can remove their presence altogether? The following I can just ignore, but the likes make a physical appearance on the blog so that’s what I’m mostly interested in removing if possible.

ETA: For now I’m just hiding the likes on the particular blog post that’s motivating this query. I’d still rather be able to delete, but this is an acceptable compromise.

  1. I’m not sure about this one. You may want to check with WordPress support. The way I get there is to hover my mouse over my gravatar in the upper right corner of my blog page, then click on “help & support” in the drop down menu. Then from there you can type in a question. I would love to know what you find out. Blessings!

  2. Can’t help really but I know what you mean… they are annoying. Mostly I just get follows and if I think they are just wanting a follow back I won’t do it. I’ve had the odd dodgy comment other than spam but I haven’t approved them. Don’t know what you can do about likes. I would imagine there is a way to completely block a particular user.
