Yes, having lots of Followers increases traffic to one's hubs. That's a good thing. And so was the Followers Accolade at first. Now people who are nice in all other respects have figured out how to game the system. Quid pro quo: I'll follow you if you reciprocate. It even has a name: backfollowing. This is a distraction, and it's slightly unfair to Hubbers who don't play games. We can already see how many Followers a Hubber has, without the redundant Accolade. I say: Let's dump it. That may put a small dent in the gamesmanship. How do you feel about the Followers Accolade?
