:) 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.
