I have noticed that next to my hubs there is a link to follow myself. When I click on it I naturally get a message that I can't follow myself. But I think the website should hide that link altogether: it makes no sense from a usability point of view to display a link that is pointless to click on.
If you notice you can't follow or contact yourself from your profile. I don't see how they could do it for every hub and still allow others to follow the hub. It does no harm.
I would imagine that would involve much tech work, I really don't know. I never even notice that area on my own hubs.
When I'm signed in, my profile does not show links for following or contacting myself.
