I did see a guy equating followers to karma and another guy asking how to draw followers. That's a bit weird, but I guess we'll see how that plays out.

It also takes time and effort to make enough quality posts to gain followers, so hopefully the lack of instant gratification will deter the people that just want followers. If not, well, there's always the ignore button.

I suppose that's so. I guess I'm just hoping I won't have to resort to using the ignore and mute features with any regularity.

It will. We've gone through this several times now but it helps to steer people in the right direction.
