    I get comments promoting something or other that has nothing to do with the article tongue it does get a annoying but least we are given the choice whether to display them or not smile

    Its the fact that someone thinks just because they follow you that you automatically owe them, I never got any special treatment... and these profile s didn't even have avatars.
    I didn't think about followers when I joined, I will follow back if I think the person deserves it though.

      This type of fanmail is useless and should be ignored. I follow writers that interest me and only wish I had more time to read all the good hubs.

    I have noticed that a Hub Greeter, a member of the HubPages Elite, has been leaving fanmail asking several new Hubbers to follow back. It looks like a cut-and-paste job. I think new Hubbers may hesitate to decline to follow back in this situation.

    I just delete those types.

    I consider it bloody rude.
