Have you ever stop following a hubber,what made you stop?
Usually I read the profile and check out several hubs before I follow someone.
As far as I recall, I've only stopped following one hubber.
Because the person supposedly befriended me, but later tried to keep me from standing good ground on an issue in the forums.
I don't lightly tolerate anyone trying to take away my freedom of speech.
Yes, often. I follow Hubbers because they write something I find interesting, and I want to know if they write more.
Sometimes it turns out the Hub I liked was a one-off, and they start writing about stuff I'm not interested in. I may post a question to ask them to write some more on the original topic, but if not then I'll stop following them.
I occasionally review my list because it's easy to collect far more people than you can possibly keep track of. I'd rather follow a few I can actually read, than follow a lot I never get round to.
Some people disagree with that because they equate following to making friends. However, the original word for followers was "fans", which makes it clearer that you're just following an artist you admire, not making pals with them.
When all the hubber does is blast people for their own opinion.
I follow if I like their hubs. if I don't, I stop following
I only follow those who's hubs I like, I dont follow any one who is bigoted and offensive to others.
I'll stop following a hubber when they turn around. cos I'm a shy kid really!
When I first joined HP I started getting followers right away and I thought the polite thing to do was to follow them back. I also followed people hoping to be followed. As I grew on HP I realized that some persons I follow were not making any contribution to the community as in not participating in forums, answering questions or publishing hubs. Some of these persons have published 1 or 2 hubs in months, even years, and that's it. I ended up following 150 people before I knew it.
So now I went through my list and have kept the persons who make the most contribution, those that are active not only in forums but publishing hubs and have something of interest to offer.
I follow hubbers if i think some or most of their hubs are interesting for me. I quit following if i found out that his articles are not interesting anymore.
it depends where do you want to go... Phil has lots of beautiful places. Do you want to go to the beach? Islands? Places with cultural heritage?
I stopped following someone because they insulted me and are full of snide and sneering remarks. I had even been to this hubber's hubs and left nice comments, etc on what I believed was fairly good writing. But when I was demeaned, I stopped following the hubber. Simple as that.
Hard to see someone would be mean to you. You are always friendly and a nice person.
I follow those whose hubs I enjoy, especially those with similar hubs. I have unfollowed hubbers before, but usually it is just to shorten my follow list of those I read less often or they have become inactive in writing.
Yes Michael, I've had sneering remarks made to me. I ignored the remarks, but unfollowed the hubbers. People who have a reputation for demeaning others for their faith are often, in itself, displaying the very narrow-mindness they accuse those who they attack!
I very rarely unfollow someone; once or twice I have when the person became too adamantly repetitive about some issue I thought was totally personal, and shouldn't be either a forum or hub topic.
I normally don't stop following someone unless I haven't seen any activity in the last 18 months or I have seen the person becoming abusive on HP. I follow people who write things that I am interested in and am selective about those topics. I don't like to follow people just to get them to follow me.
This is bad because now I have that song going through my head
Follow me by Uncle Kracker:
You don't know how you met me
You don't know why, you can't turn around and say good-bye
all you know is when i'm with you I make you free
And swim through your veins like a fish in the sea
Everything is alright
I'll be the one to tuck you in at night
And if you want to leave
I can guarantee
You won't find nobody else like me
I don't quit anyone. Unless they do something criminal.
Everyone is entitled to their opinion and whether I agree or not with the opinion, I respect that right.
I respect that I have the right to discontinue following. Just as I respect the right that anyone can say what they want,but I don't have to be around them or listen.
If you don't like what someone is saying,cut it off!
When I see the need,I unfollow.
Good question. From my point of view would be because of questionable conduct. Example abusive speech , violence in comments , argumentive people who refuse your right to your own choice.when there is an answer question topic its open to all unless it says so.
People who are preducice against other nationalities , people are mean and not compassionate toward others. People who are so educated they brag and tear others down to feel superior.
And the list goes on.
But what keeps me here is the good hubers opposite of the bad they give HP a good name.
"What makes you stop following a hubber?"
Only if they're mean to me.
I refuse to follow hubbers who don't have a sense of humor, or have an incredibly boring online personality, but mainly those who forget my birthday and don't care as much as I do

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...

Why would you stop following another hubber?What reasons do you have to stop following a hubber? Can they tell who has "dropped" them?

I have some experience with this. I find blocking people to be no fun. The guys never stop following, but I have noticed a decline in the girl followers. Must be saying some offensive stuff I guess. I'd like to make a joke out of it here.

What makes you choose to follow another hubber?I have come across quite a few members on here who are following hundreds of other hubbers. I can only speak for myself, but I barely have enough time to write my own hubs, let alone time to read every hub that is published by all of the people that I...

Why do followers stop following ?I have lost 3 followers this week for no apparent reason. I wonder what people's reasons are for unfollowing each other. Why follow in the first place? My suspicious mind tells me it is people who only followed me originally to try to increase their own flock of...
