Cannot see it is. Please get another forum software. There's better forum software out there than this.

There's enough stalking going on around here already. No need to make it easier for people to do so.
Which alt am I arguing with? Oh hell with it, there are just too many to count.

Then the forum software should be changed. It's possible elsewhere.

Plenty of swollen egos as well.

Imagine if people started measuring their self-worth by how many "followers" they have. They would create alt accounts just to make zombie followers of themselves...

The kudos system is bad enough.

I see that someone has just created an alt account with a deceptively similar name to mine for the purpose of impersonating me.

I'm SO flattered. Not.

You can sort of "follow" already using the users' posts link:

https://www.fasttech.com/forums/author/-?author=Jollyyeeah

Just change the name and bookmark it.

I would have thought an ignore function would have been more favorable....and necessary.

Although, it`s nice to see the bright, fresh spirit of a non-jaded new forum user see the positives at first.
