followers on cm?

i think cm should add a follower button that would allow people to read the answers and questions posted by a certain person. someone said they have people they enjoy reading on here. i think this might work to encourage more answers as well. what do you think?

  • I like it in theory but I can see it being abused. Once people get anon back, how easy would it be to just follow the people they don't like and go around leaving passive aggressive comments on all their answers? (as in, behaving exactly like they did before when they stayed just on the safe side of being reported). There's a question going today that's already demonstrated downvoting isn't really all that effective. The same answer was downvoted to a -4 twice today, and both times people who agreed with the sentiment, even though it was rude and had nothing to do with the question, voted it back up.

  • you can add them as a friend and just read their transcripts, does the same..

    plus prevents others you don't want as stalkers.

  • You can follow your friends by adding the Recent Activity widget. I, personally, do not care for that at all but it is what it is.

  • I agree with the above poster. Though if CM makes followers I think it should have to be approved by whoever you want to follow, like a friend request.

  • Seems like it would be a little easier than my method of just clicking their name and reading their responses to questions.

  • IDK...I stopped using Twitter for that reason. Lots of people I don't even know following started to feel a little too stalker-ish for my taste.

  • Nice point NotPanicking... I didn't think about that side of it.
