    Its the fact that someone thinks just because they follow you that you automatically owe them, I never got any special treatment... and these profile s didn't even have avatars.
    I didn't think about followers when I joined, I will follow back if I think the person deserves it though.

      This type of fanmail is useless and should be ignored. I follow writers that interest me and only wish I had more time to read all the good hubs.

    I have noticed that a Hub Greeter, a member of the HubPages Elite, has been leaving fanmail asking several new Hubbers to follow back. It looks like a cut-and-paste job. I think new Hubbers may hesitate to decline to follow back in this situation.
