    Just take comfort in the fact that they have outsourced it to the internet.

    ...That you know of.

    I'm not following you, just anticipating your next move, and getting there before you.

    Well, to be fair, the one person who I have actually met from this forum is one of the followers, and that doesn't bother me in the least. None of it actually bothers me. It just seems a little weird

    More and more I think attention is the greatest positive reinforcement the world has ever known. And I mean that from a behavioral context.

    Hi.

    You follow someone by clicking on “follow.” You find this on their profile, like when you click on their name or avatar. It’s right next to “ignore.”

    I noticed these when looking at people’s avatar images. Some look really interesting, but are hard to see - make ‘em big and clear folks.* :)

    Why are they following you Blowtorch? At first I just thought maybe they find your views interesting or entertaining. But then I read post #8 by @Boreas and it also makes sense. It’s no secret you’ve run the gauntlet expressing yourself. Maybe there’s some ‘let’s keep an eye on this one’ going on? However, even though it is a ‘makes sense’ conclusion, I don’t think it’s a ‘probable’ conclusion.

    * just occurred to me, maybe they want to look at your revolving avatars? Yours I notice are always visually led gibberish **

    ** that was auto corrected - “are always visually legible “ it was meant to be. Too good to change :)

    I only follow you when you head out for groceries in your black 2015 Toyota Tundra, Wisconsin license plate GLS-436 (your rear passenger side tire looks a little low on air!)

    This is hilarious. Unless this is actually correct, then it's a bit creepy. :eek:
