    This is rearing it's ugly head again, I'm afraid.

    I received a notification on Friday evening (via email) that I was being followed by someone on here, with whom I have had very little contact/verbal exchange. We only mutually belong to Scoop's own Groups (ie, this one and your Tech Support) therefore, do not understand why he finds my meagre contributions so interesting. I managed to temporarily get rid of my follower (I don't like followers, find them creepy and stalker-ish). But within the hour, he had tried to follow me again, when I find no reason for him to have done so. I have now blocked him completely. This should not be necessary.

    Could you please stop the 'Following Option' - it can be really intimidating. I think if someone wishes to 'Follow' someone, they need to ask permission first.

    Thanks
