    Kind friends:

    Inasmuch as I have learned (via another thread on this forum) that 'followers' are provided with a 'feed' of their host's activities - taken with the involuntary nature of said parasitization --- I would know if there is any means of purging same??? --- Frankly, I find provision of a non-authorized 'follow' feature nothing short of outrageous - on principle alone - but especially in light of its liability to abuse by spammers for 'targeting' purposes...

    Please know - I realize this is a Xenforo problem! -- No fault of AAC!:)

    Any info/feedback will be greatly appreciated!:)

    Best regards
    HP

    PS -- As far as I know, my 'followers' have occasioned me no difficulty - Hence, at this point, the requested info is for future reference --- OBTW @Aleph(0) - this is in NO WAY directed at you! -- So stay frosty...K?:cool:

    The are like bubbles in beer to me, harmless. They find you interesting.

    The other user chooses whether to follow you or not, just as you choose who to follow. I don't think that can be changed, but I can be wrong.

    Or, perhaps, higher quality nitrogen bubbles (i.e. Guinness).

    You thought the Internet was private? This and a couple of other recent statements convince me you are younger than I had previously thought. Something about how wonderful an adversarial relationship is? (I bet I got the adjective wrong.) Point is, if you have the energy to enjoy that, you are a LOT younger than I am! (I much prefer conspiracies.)

    Just remember, injuries accumulate. Don't x-ray yourself too much. ;)

    'Course not!:D No reason to encourage/facilitate 'groupies' (and their ilk) though!:mad::)

    For the record, I meant that many close relationships (whether amative or 'fraternal/sororal') begin in adversarial settings -- Tho' I'm bound to say some degree of 'tension' seems beneficial to the health of all 'systems' - Including human relationships:cool:

    I plead no contest!:D:D:D:D

    I'd bet my last erythrocyte on it:p

    I just figured it out! HP has a controlling interest in all of the online search/dictionary companies. :) there are very few of HP's posts that don't send me looking to see what a word means :) At ~68yr's who would think I'm learning new words and meanings of them.

    HP not a follower, just a satisfied customer. :)

    HP, the likely-hood of you "purging" your followers is the same as you changing your stripes. You speaking in a single level, simple sentence ain't gonna happen. So just relax and let the bubbles tickle your behind. Life is good.

    All's cool!:) --- Just wanted to know if there was a (native) means to the end --- I'll somehow survive:cool::cool::cool: --- On a similar 'tack' a 'reverse ignore' feature (i.e. a feature rendering one's own posts invisible to selected members) would be highly desirable:D:D:D --- A (sadly) impractical idea, inasmuch as said feature could be 'in force' only in the event that the 'targeted member{s}' were logged in...

    BTW: Sincerely: To date, I have encountered NO ONE on this site whom I wish to ignore, nor hide from!!! --- It's merely that I detest 'groupies'!!!:mad::mad::mad: -- Though, again, I have neither encountered - nor expect to encounter - them here!:):):):)

    Very best regards
