An "Un-Faning" Feature

    I would love to see a feature that allows a hubber to block another hubber. For instance, if a certain hubber is a "follower/fan" of mine, and I don't want them to be, why can't I remove them?

    (Kind of like Facebook's Un-friending)

      You can delete any comments anyone makes on hubs, and you can report them if they email you incessantly and give you grief or are in general a pain on your hubs in violation of TOS.

      Ouch, I'd feel bad if someone asked me to stop following them. What's the point of that?

    That is true, but if I'm reporting them, won't they possibly be removed from HP? That's not really what I'd want...

    Plus it's just inundating the HP staff with more things to do. Isn't it better for us to decide who can/cannot follow us?

      If you mark the comment as spam HP will not allow the user to comment on your hub anymore. Not sure if it's applicable for hubbers.

      In case you are reporting a spammer what is the problem if the number of spammer decreases from this site being reported by you?

      Why do you care who is a follower of yours unless that person is harassing you? 

      If someone is being abusive to you, or spamming you, that is exactly the sort of thing that admin wants you to report to them as both such things violate the terms of use for this site.

      If only it were that easy.

      No, if you report a hubber the alleged infraction will be investigated. And actioned, if there is an actual infringement.

    I thought it would be like a blog where you can edit who follows you.But clearly it's not.And then all these followers are put out if you don't read their hubs.I can't read 67 hubs every day.Thank you everybody.I think that was useful

      HubPages is NOT a blog.

      And although I have nearly 3000 followers, I follow less than two dozen people myself. 

      Only follow people whose work you really like and don't waste any of your time worrying about who is following you.  It's their choice, that's all.

        Yes,I don't want a blog.I know it's not a blog.That's why I like it.I don't want ads either.I just want to write my poetry and post it.People can [because we all come from different parts of the world] sometimes write comments which seem a bit odd in which case one can delete them.Thanks for the advice.

    I guess I can see why there isn't a "remove" feature, because the articles/hubs are supposed to be like open source content. i.e. putting it all over the internet.

      YES,it's like a magazine or a journal.

    You could always contact the unwanted follower and ask them to unfollow you?

      What a great idea ;-) That's a bit like phoning an "ex" to ask them not to contact you again I guess?

    I still don't understand why you would care who is following you if they aren't harassing you.

    Does it matter if someone is following you? They don't really become any more visable to you.

    It doesn't really matter who is following me, unless they are harassing me.
