Sometimes I cry silently at night knowing MK, b_b, and Forwardslash aren't following me and it hurts inside.

:) Don't take it personally, Cortez. insomniasexx and thenewgreen are two of my favorite hubskiers, and I don't follow them.

IMO treating following like friending can break the Hubski experience. Since lil, and now b_b follow you, and I follow them, I'll see your posts when they like them most. Or, they can reach me in a less direct way.

If I followed everyone that I liked personally, I'd almost have the hubskihose as my feed.

I'll follow you, not that it would help. I thought you were 14 years old -- which is a feature, not a bug!! but maybe that's someone else. Can you clarify? I suspect mk and b_b only follow people who legally drink.

I'm eighteen, but I have the heart of an eight year old which I've tried to have surgically removed but I'm waiting for a donor.

I used to follow everyone I found even slightly interesting. Then I kind of stopped following more people, because I found that I followed so many people that I was seeing pretty much everything that got shared.

This is a perfect example of what I like to call #thestruglife.
