Is it rude to unfollow a hub or a question after you have put in your two cents in?
A lot of questions and hubs are so awesome that I like to leave a comment but really don't wanna keep getting emails about other hubber's comment. Maybe I'm rude but if I wanna read them I think I would go back to that hub or question. So am I rude.......?
I've actually been wondering the same thing? I like to hear what people are saying but I don't like getting all of the emails that come with every response. I can't wait to see how experienced hubbers answer this question. Thanks for posting the question!
You asked a question.
I gave my answer.
End of obligation.
Sometimes, I do want to know what others think.........I might learn something from another perspective.
Sometimes, what I think is my last stand.......and the opinions will not matter.
There is no rudeness, in opting out, and not following a question that you answered.
If I continued to follow all of the hubs that I've commented on or questions I've answered, there wouldn't be enough time in the week, much less the day, to read them all. After a while, I loose interest in reading comments and answers and unfollow the hub/question because I know there will be new ones to follow. I try to keep the # of hubs/questions I'm following at a manageable level. It's not rude to unfollow; it's an efficient use of your time.
I hope not, because once I have read the question and answered it, I only keep following it if I want to hear other hubber opinions. In fact, I think there is a place in your profile you can set so it doesn't automatically follow a question. And even below the answer, there is a box I can unclick if I don't want to follow the question.
I generally do follow the question for a couple of days after I post an answer, just in case someone says anything directly to me, but I will stop following after a couple of days.
I do keep following my own questions - after all, I want to know the answer, and it would be rude to ask a question and not listen to the answer.

I am literally sick and tired of people who follow you, and then, when you follow them back, they promptly unfollow you. Really, people? What do you do when someone unfollows you shortly after you follow them? Do you hunt them down and unfollow them as well? Do you send them mail saying what they...

Why can I no longer click on the Follow and Unfollow button on the Questions and Forums? I used to be able to do that without having to respond myself. A question was asked and I wanted to follow to see what everyone said because I had the same question. To follow it, I had to respond. My response...

When you unfollow someone, does Fan Mail you left them disappear?I am wondering if you unfollow someone or if they unfollow you, does fan mail that was posted disappear?

When one has made a comment on someone's hub, one is subsequently notified of all future comments. On hp, one could just say unfollow, but this option doesn't seem to be available on the niche sites.I don't want to do my general settings to 'no notifications,' because I like to follow some. But if...
