How did this happen?

    I somehow came across this profile and it strikes me as very strange that this user can have 0 hubs but 300 followers.

    Any ideas?

      i can only think that he has had all his hubs deleted and is one of those that has systematically gone through the hubber list and followed people, the majority of whom will follow back out of politeness

        It really is a little annoying. It looks like they've literally just followed everyone and hoped they follow back.

      I'm one of said followers... and I don't think I would've been following anyone with zero Hubs.  I'm guessing they removed all their Hubs, for some reason.

    It's not really unique.  I've seen it several times.

        happens alot. the whole profile will possibly be gone soon.

        10 days ago she made 100 forum posts.

        Before that her hubs recieved an accolade for a number (1000?) of views.

        A look thru hubtivity shows several answers to questions.

        plus at least one comment to one of my hubs.

        Many of the comments she made were to hubs that no longer exist, I am pretty sure they were her hubs.

        For some reason, she left or they were unpublished. I know hubs once upon a time existed. And going thru the list of people who followed her, I doubt they all followed out of  mere politeness. Just one more quiet hubber slipped into the shadows.  sad

        hey mioluna, I hope your well!!
