Sorry about the subject line, but I didn't know what to put there.
Over the past few days, I've checked my notification email and it tells me so-and-so is following me, but when I click on the link to take at look at their profile, the profile has a message saying the person has been banned from Hubpages. It seems the person signed up a few hours before they chose to follow me and then something happens. Are people really getting banned that quickly?

I usually check out the profiles of the hubbers who follow me. Last night, when I checked one of these profiles the user had been banned. I thought it was strange this individual still had "following...
