How do I stop someone from following me?
I don't know of any way to do that. I would ask this question in the support center.
This is all that I have found.
Interesting question. I think any forum is worthy of the threats that occur on FB. I quit FB years ago after helping to organize a HS reunion briefly.
I'm considering dropping out of forums also. One should do a risk vs benefit analysis for any internet endeavor. Being hacked or followed by creeps is hardly worth the benefit most forums offer. Forum policies and guidelines only apply to law abiding members.
You could also report them if you are concerned.
3. Unacceptable Behavior
Deliberate intimidation, stalking or following (online or in person).
You are being watched.
No way around it.
Be a nice boy for Christmas.
I agree that this is an option, however, how does one identify intimidation or stalking unless someone has threatened you? I can understand that one may feel intimidated or stalked even if no overt threat has been made.
I am not being threatened by this individual but as far as I know I am in his ignore list. What does following get the person following?
I just despise him and I think he is looking for something to complain about.
I have some people on my follow list but I have no clue how they got there.
They clicked the 'follow' link that comes up when one looks at your profile.
Or do you mean the list of people YOU follow? Unless someone can hack the system, you had to have clicked them if they are showing as ppl that you follow.
But on MY follow list there are numerous people, but the guy I don't want to follow me is not on my list. How do people get on MY list?
I didn't see your reply when I edited mine a moment ago... unless someone hacked somehow, then you had to have done that! You can "un-follow" I believe, that's your choice.
Good question though about preventing someone from following you. I looked all over and can't see any option for preventing that. In my opinion, there should be a way. Say for example, if you put them on ignore, they should be prevented from following.
I can see where if someone wants to give someone a hard time, they can 'follow' and then reply to every thread they post with some snarky comment. Now I get it... I've seen that a few times with your posts and I think I know who you are wanting to block from following you.
