Buzz Off!

I have since unfollowed everyone on Buzz and am summarily blocking anyone who attempts to follow me and I suggest you do the same. C|net has instructions here.

Edit: Deleting your public profile now pulls you out of the system. Note: You were added to their system automatically, even if you clicked "Nah".
