I would love to see a feature that allows a hubber to block another hubber. For instance, if a certain hubber is a "follower/fan" of mine, and I don't want them to be, why can't I remove them?
(Kind of like Facebook's Un-friending)
You can delete any comments anyone makes on hubs, and you can report them if they email you incessantly and give you grief or are in general a pain on your hubs in violation of TOS.
Ouch, I'd feel bad if someone asked me to stop following them. What's the point of that?
That is true, but if I'm reporting them, won't they possibly be removed from HP? That's not really what I'd want...
Plus it's just inundating the HP staff with more things to do. Isn't it better for us to decide who can/cannot follow us?
If you mark the comment as spam HP will not allow the user to comment on your hub anymore. Not sure if it's applicable for hubbers.
In case you are reporting a spammer what is the problem if the number of spammer decreases from this site being reported by you?
Why do you care who is a follower of yours unless that person is harassing you?
If only it were that easy.
No, if you report a hubber the alleged infraction will be investigated. And actioned, if there is an actual infringement.
I thought it would be like a blog where you can edit who follows you.But clearly it's not.And then all these followers are put out if you don't read their hubs.I can't read 67 hubs every day.Thank you everybody.I think that was useful
HubPages is NOT a blog.
And although I have nearly 3000 followers, I follow less than two dozen people myself.
Only follow people whose work you really like and don't waste any of your time worrying about who is following you. It's their choice, that's all.
Yes,I don't want a blog.I know it's not a blog.That's why I like it.I don't want ads either.I just want to write my poetry and post it.People can [because we all come from different parts of the world] sometimes write comments which seem a bit odd in which case one can delete them.Thanks for the advice.
I guess I can see why there isn't a "remove" feature, because the articles/hubs are supposed to be like open source content. i.e. putting it all over the internet.
You could always contact the unwanted follower and ask them to unfollow you?
I still don't understand why you would care who is following you if they aren't harassing you.
Does it matter if someone is following you? They don't really become any more visable to you.
It doesn't really matter who is following me, unless they are harassing me.

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...

What makes you decide to un-follow a fellow hubber?Have you un-followed someone here in Hubpages? What made you do so?

Do you feel it's just plain rude for a hubber not to follow you back?

A few weeks ago I posted something on the forums wondering where the feature for nominating a hub for Editor's Choice had gone. It was removed because of lack of use. Now that Editor's Choice hubs are featured much more prominently, with banners, social media promotions, HOTD...

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?
