Thanks for posting this. I personally don't have a problem following people but I do have a penchant for stalking very good forums posts.
Seriously, I also want to mention that spamming comments with your hub links is a very easy way to get that score to 1 as well. A hubber who shall remain nameless, very nice person but his MO seems to be leaving his links all over the place used to be in his 90s when I joined HP in 2011, is now a very prominent 1
I hope I am "normal" enough, if a touch on a underproductive side, lol. Do you mean "polite following" can lower your score? Does that mean when you follow someone back after they follow you? The only thing that gets me a little is the ones that follow you and left you a fan mail that clearly shows they haven't read anything you wrote and probably don't plan to, lol
Yes, that's what I mean. Do a test......unfollow people you don't read, wait a day and see what happens to your score. When my score fell to the lower 80s for no reason, I followed the advise of someone and unfollowed a few people including people with very low scores and inactive hubbers, my score went t 97 in 24 hours, a jump of about 12 points. It has stayed in the mid to upper 90s since.
This is good for the new people to know. I wouldn't have known unless someone else had pointed it out. One hubber did write a very fun article about how his score dropped to 1 because of this. But, fortunately, he seems to be back in the 90s now.
well what is excessive following. I don't think we're supposed to be on hub pages and not follow anyone. I try to read at least one hub before I follow someone. And I also these days try and follow people who have read my hubs or answered my questions. And if I like what a hubber has written in forums or questions i look at their profile and follow them too.
I've been followed by a few that were following thousands of people within a week of being on HubPages. They were obviously not reading that many hubs, just following to get followers. I never re-follow people who do that.
I think most of the time it's probably done innocently, by people trying to be friendly. They have no idea they can their profile score, which is why it's a good idea for someone more experienced to post a warning. Otherwise, how would anyone know?
This does my nut in! I only follow people who's hubs I am interested in. I saw someone who had joined 24 hours ago, no hubs, and following 246 people!?! Also, the people who ask a billion stupid questions in a bid to be noticed make me mad!!! Lol rant over!

Dear Hubbers. I've recently noticed so many changes on Hubpages. I had no internet for a week and upon my return things look so different. I like the cleaner white pages with the underline beneath the titles. The column...
