I am being followed by a number
October 27, 2015 7:16pm CST
I got a notification that I have a new follower. He (?) has a very strange name. It consists of numbers. Ten numbers, to be exact. Like a phone number with area code. This follower has no activity, and apparently, no name. Now and again I gain a follower who doesn't have any posts. But usually, they have activity and their profile will show me the responses they've made on discussions. I know that this person is an active member of the community. Hey, not everyone wants to write. But I am a little wary of followers who don't have anything. How can anyone start following people before they've so much as read a discussion - any discussion? What do you do when someone follows you but doesn't have any activity to tell you anything about them? Do you ignore it and wait? Follow them back? Block them? Hide your cash and jewelry?

I was 008 ter yesterday. I usually does not follow back a member who has no activity, because some of them were spammers sending PMs in the past. However, there are also many lurkers joining myLot just to read the discussions, and several are following me.

If I had any valuables, I think that I would hide them just in case. Then again, if he (or she) is just waiting and watching, then you might be leading them right to exactly what they want. On second thought, I think that I would leave the things right where they are and just keep vigilant to see whether or not he (or she) pops out at you in a dark alley.
