What do you think of hubbers who collect followers and then suddenly un folow almost all of them?
I have noticed that a few people here on hubpages who were followers collected like hundreds of followers and then suddenly deleted almost all their followers. I mean I couldn't care less about how many followers I have but find it a little strange that people seem to be doing that.
I've had that happen 3x this week. But turns out, they were banned by HP. I'm not sure why. I went back to look at their Hubs. They had 0 and a notice said they were banned.
Over my years here I was following a few hundred people up until a couple months ago. I then sat down, went through, and unfollowed anyone who wasn't active or that I didn't read anymore. I went from following 400 to following 27. I'm sure to some that may have looked strange, but in reality I should have only been following 27 to begin with. I got caught up in the trying to be nice by following ways that I lost track of what following is really all about. If I'm not reading their work then it's pointless to follow. Others come in brand new and follow almost everyone then unfollow as soon as they have collected enough "return followers". While it's a bad practice it is efficient.
Fortunately my followers and me are friends too I really haven't had anyone unfollow me but then I try to keep up with my faithful followers.

Will HubPages penalise people who add other hubbers without reason by reducing their Author Rating?Just wondering because otherwise it seems like the "follow me I'll follow you" approach is the best one to get...

In my years on this site I have seen so many people randomly follow me in hopes that I follow them back. And then as soon as I do, if the topics they write on interest me, they delete me from the hubbers they're...
