When I post to the forums, my profile pic often comes up with a number of followers that is greater by one than my actual number. We have ghosts here! Welcome ghostly follower, whoever you are.
oh great now we have ghost followers? hello to WriteAngled ghost follower hehehe
I've had that too. I had one less on my Profile Page than on the Forums. I thought it was a Follower who had somehow not 'surfaced' properly.
I wish I had a ghost follower.. although I did almost have a psychic girlfriend once, but she left me before we met.

Wouldn't it be great if we could de-fan a follower? If your asking, "why in the world would you want to do that?" Let me tell you. Recently I have been gaining quite a few followers which actually helped push my numbers over 200. That is great. However, most of these people have not only...

Do any of you have people following you, but they have not writen any hubs, yet these people...have some 5-50 people following them? And, do you think that it is possible that these people may copy hubs and try to pass them on as their own?

I pretty much thought that this went out of fashon about 6 or 7 years ago. However over the last week, I have seen several people operate on the basis that if they add you, then you must add them. Someone has just also written that in their profile - that s/he will add whoever adds him/her.So...
