I am being followed by someone with no hubs, who claims to have over 100 followers. As I always do with a new follower, I went to this persons profile and all their hubtivity is following other hubbers. Their off hub url is a spam ad. How do I remove them from my followers list and block them?
i think you should not worry about it
1. if they are spammer they will be penalized by the HP team
2. anyone may like your hub and follow you even before publishing his/her first hub.
Thanks saleheen.fl12.blogspot.com is the one following me.
I don't care if people follow without posting. It's when they take advantage of others that I have an issue. More so after what Nell Rose went through last week.
I have flagged their profile, so it's just a case of wait and see, now.
I came here as a reader, and followed many and read. I'm a couple of months shy of 2 years with only 10 hubs, but I do enjoy reading and interacting with the writers. I have made 750 comments and I don't know how many up ratings with out comment.
If they are mistreating you, flag them. Sooner or later the "spam" police will catch them, so enjoy the "good" here, 50
The only thing you can really do is flag their profile.
It's kind of silly to spam follow, since it doesn't actually achieve anything but I guess spam followers aren't that smart to begin with!
i don't know if you could block or not but if they are spammer just flag their profile.
fl12.blogspot.com and MakeMoneyGoal are two of them.
I don't know. I am new so I could be wrong. But fl12blogspot.com is a spam, I think. "She" has NO hubs and yet in 8 days she has way over two hundred followers. She is following hundreds of hubbers already, and apparently some just return the favor without checking her out. When she "followed me" I checked her out. She has no hubs amd makes no comments and has in 8 days that many folowers.. Maybe because she she spent hours and following hubbers. Of course it may not be.........
Isn't there also the chance "she" may have a bunch of alter egos and be following herself in exchange for following herself?
Anyone can follow you, if you have a problem with any of them just don't follow back. The 100 followers this person has gained obviously are of the 'follow me and I will follow you' brigade. It’s nothing to be concerned about.
I'm a schizophrenic with abandonment issues is it ok for me to follow myself and see what I get up to before reporting me?
Whatever makes you happy - or, as the case may be, less miserable.
or before you abondon yourself. Thats never fun.
I did abandon myself once but then I met myself on a one way trip around the world as I was headng back.
It's not easy having a split personality sometimes I don't know which way to turn.
but no matter wich you you choose, you will find yourself.
I posted this on my cubicle at work one day.
"I have gone to find myself. If I should return before I get back, please keep me here until I return.
My supervisor was confused for over a week.
RE: Spammer/followers: Report them. I reported the two mentioned. There's no other way to block them that I know of.

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...

What has your experience been. Did you notice that the more people you followed, the more people followed you? Did you ever start following people just because you wanted more followers? I have been pretty selective in the people that I follow and I am totally happy with all of the awesome Hubbers...

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 following?Do you guys really think this makes people want to read and comment on...

When you are notified of a new follower, how do you respond?Do you go to their page and check them out? Do you read any of their hubs? Do you mke sure that they are legitimate? I have a lot of followers who seem to be advertisers. Hubpages are really good about weeding them out but I do see many...

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...
