Do "Bogus Followers" annoy you as much as they annoy me?


I’m irritated when I’m notified that someone (let us call that someone OBSEQUIOUS-LITTLE-OIK) is following me on HubPages, but when I look at traffic to my pages, it’s obvious that OBSEQUIOUS-LITTLE-OIK hasn’t read anything that I’ve written, or if so, hasn’t bothered to leave a comment.. Is the word “follower” or “following” unfamiliar to him or to her? OBSEQUIOUS-LITTLE-OIK may be attempting some form of Empire Building, but I can’t be bothered to look at what he/she has contributed, as I feel that good manners are somehow involved here, and they are lacking on OBSEQUIOUS-LITTLE-OIK’s part.
