Is it proper etiquette to follow someone who has decided to follow you? Are we expected to tit-for-tat?

Some people expect it, sure. But I wouldn't allow yourself to feel pressured if you don't want to do the tit-for-tat thing (to me it's totally pointless - why follow someone unless you actually want to read their stuff?)
On a related note, I would be really grateful if Hub Pages admin could give people the option of keeping the number and identity of their followers private.
