I'd feel really awkward having to do that when I follow someone. Especially if I just happen to see them a lot on similar posts, without any real concrete reason.

Couldn't you just not write a comment then?

I'm thinking that if the norm becomes writing a comment, not doing so would be even more awkward. Kinda admitting that you don't know why you are following. If others are down for the change, and it happens, I'll come up with something, but I have some reservations.

I mean...I don't get why not message someone if you want, don't if you don't? Why does there have to be a "norm". I mean...what is the point? I don't understand what changing things would actually solve. If you want to talk to someone talk to them. If not don't.

Very true. Didn't think about it that way.
