Lately I'm getting a few followers with no Hubs, no profile info and weird fanmail or email.
Is there a way to block these people from following me? Or is Hubpages at least working on something in the privacy settings?
I'd rather be able to do something about it than wait for Hubpages to kick them out.
I've been getting the same thing Escobana. I wouldn't be surprised if it was the same person creating multiple accounts and then going on following sprees. I keep getting weird fan mail too. 'Hi' or 'Hi friends'. I'm not sure whether we can block people on here, but it might be worth clicking on their profiles and flagging them to see if HP can do anything about it.
I did flag their profiles and the type of fanmail is similar to yours. Sometimes I get a link to sell products as fanmail.
I'd rather have the option to unfollow them and be done with it.
Thanks for responding. To not allow others to contact me, is not really what I mean to. Most people contacting me are serious writers with nice emails.
Blocking those who have no business here, bothering others by spamming and sending emails that make no sense, is what hubpages should make possible.
I'll think of suggesting it to hubpages but I find they have enough on their hands with all the recent changes:-) Thanks for the tip!
Just go into the 'Fan Mail' part of your account and press the deny button

When I first joined Hubpages, I went, as I call it, click crazy. I was just following everyone I could in hopes they would follow me and read my hubs. Soon I realized that half of the people I followed weren't even...

I am still new to Hubpages and have been enjoying a rather successful start. Thank you to those who have voted my articles up and those few of you who have begun to follow me. But I have noticed one thing of late and...

What has your experience been. Did you notice that the more people you followed, the more people followed you? Did you ever start following people just because you wanted more followers? I have been pretty selective in...

While I understand that hubbers might occasionally want to share some of their own hubs with their followers, it can be frustrating to see multiple 'old' hubs shared by their owner when looking at the 'feed'. I'd...
