Blocking, or Stopping, a Google+ Follower
(See Updated post.)
Sometimes, someone likes your blog, and will Follow it from his/her Google+ Circles, or using his/her Google+ Profile. That's a compliment! However, some bloggers may not wish to have this 'strange' person Following their blog. To them, it is like having a stalker, I'd imagine. It's someone scary and not wanted - definitely to be rid of. Why? I don't know, but it happens.
So, how do you Block some un-wanted Follower? Simple. For this example, I've chosen (the dastardly) David.
Step 1 - Choose the un-wanted Follower from the gadget images ...
Step 2 - his/her Profile will be displayed. Click the little gear-wheel icon, and a drop-down menu appears. Click on Report/block (name)
Step 3 - Now, the tricky part. You get to choose what you want to do - crucify the person, just mutilate him/her, or beat him/her up a little. JUST JOKING, folks! Seriously, though, you can do some damage here to a Follower who may be innocent of all wrong intentions. Just Block him/her. Don't go Reporting his profile - unless he/she deserves it.
