I don't follow everyone back. I only follow the ones who I like their questions/answers, or if they are hot. Lmao jk. Sometimes I think I'm following a user, but I'm not though. Not sure why following matters though? Does anything special happen or something? lol
I'd hope not. i'd b a real bitch if that were the case lol. to clarify, the reason y i dont always do it is because i simply dont recognise everyone here or at least seen em around. i also dont appreciate getting messages like 'hey baby'. those r irritating af.
It's not rude. Following someone back just because they followed you is not an obligation. You should follow people because you enjoy their questions/answers and want to see them in your feed. Not because you want to be polite. I don't follow many people on here because I don't need to. I really don't check out any of the feeds/categories but the site feed (aka most recent questions asked/answered). So the whole following thing is completely pointless to me. Anyone who takes following so seriously should reevaluate their priorities lol. Don't worry about it.
I try to follow everyone that follows me, but sometimes I'll get a follow followed by a creepy message and so I don't follow them in return. When I first got here, I used to feel a certain way when people didn't follow me back. Now it doesn't really bother me.
It's not rude. We don't have to play this game if we don't want to. I don't really get the concept on "follow here" so I just don't. And it's no because someone follow you that you have to do it as well.
personally i follow everyone who follows me, unless i forget it sometime so it would be best if that someone reminds me to follow him/her back, as i always say "thanks" to everyone who gives me MHO non-automatically :-)
