What would make you unfollow a Hubber?
I was looking at the list of Hubbers I follow and noticed some have not had any Hubs published for months. In fact, one had never published a Hub. (I'm not sure why I followed him in the first place.). How often do you purge your list of Hubbers you follow for inactivity?
The point is we start to follow a hubber if we liked a hub or an answer/forum comment they made. But in the end we dont actually look the dated when it was published, if we think its good we start to follow. But the chances are that hubber has never returned back for months and that hub was almost an year old. And i had such experiences in the past. But it makes sense to follow such hubbers for there will be no annoying mails or notifications and yet they deserve a follower if that particularity hub they wrote was valuable and informative.
I unfollow hubbers who haven't published any hubs for months. This question reminds me of that I should look who to unfollow next. I don't purge my list of hubbers very often. I think I have done it three times this past year. Good question!
The only time I would unfollow a hubber - and thankfully it has never happened - is if they were agressive or rude in their manner without due cause or if I felt that they were spamming in some way. I don't really pay attention to the activity of most of my followers, there's just too many. I have a group of hubbers that I really enjoy reading and interacting with and I tend to stick with them rather than trying to get around all followers to 'unfollow' or read their work. It's a shame not to be able to read everyone's work, but there is just no time to do it.
I have never unfollowed a hubber once I've committed myself to follow them. The only thing which would make me think about it is if I thought they were treating either my fellow hubbers or myself unfairly or rude. Some writers don't have as much time to be here as others do. If they still have hubs posted here, they could be back even if they have been gone a spell.
I never follow someone if I am not interested in reading their hubs. I never follow someone just to get them to read and follow me. Either they like my hubs or they don't. I expect the same from them. I know we are all here to learn. I know all my hubs aren't great, but I try just like everyone else does here. Every now and then I do come up with a good one.
I see some people follow hundreds and hundreds of fellow hubbers. I don't see how they keep up with this many. I tend to follow only those I'm sincere about wanting to read their hubs. As time goes on I'm sure I will follow more.
I just recently purged the follower list for the first time. Some people announced they left HP while others for some reason are awol. I would like to keep following but unless they leave notice as to why they're gone for 6 mos or more, there's no reason for me to keep following.
I don't like to unfollow Hubbe's unless they actively do something that is interfering with my HubPage experience. I have only done it two times.
One Hubber rarely published articles and instead would ask dozens of questions a day. I got the feeling he was asking questions to raise his HubberScore, instead of being curious about the answers. His question were taking up the space of articles I might have been interested in reading.
Another hubber was following 20 people a day and it got to the point where there were a couple mornings that when I checked hubpages it was just them following people.
I would never unfollow a hubber. It does make sense that some haven't pubslihed any hubs. But they are all hubbers and sometimes inspiration can make them publish hubs.

What are your reasons for unfollowing a hubber?I went to the list of hubbers I follow, and I found out that many are not active on hubpages. I unfollowed everyone who has not published anything in the last 4 months. I also unfollowed the hubbers who do not comment on my hubs.

Do you feel it's just plain rude for a hubber not to follow you back?
