So, I have noticed this increasing trend lately, and while I’m flattered, it’s getting a little annoying.

One of the joys of the little followers box at the bottom of my profile is to see who has followed me recently so I can also go take a listen / look to see what they do.

Unfortunately some of the new authors are abusing this by following, un-following and then re-following again and again to stay at the top of the list. I am assuming they do this in hopes of trying to snag more traffic? Not that it will actually help them much haha…

Anyway, looking at a few other author’s pages I see this is not just happening to me.

So I kindly ask, and you know who you are :) ... if you are doing the whole follow / unfollow / re-follow thing – PLEASE stop.

Thanks :)

Displaying follower list in the profile page is useless and misleading. Is there any other use on this other than making authors to try awkward things?

P.S., just followed myself, and didn’t make it to the top of the list. You sure that’s how it works?
