    You can't criticise other members or find it strange, Dianne, for using the option when you are using the option for whatever ever "logical" excuse you find that it's okay for you to use it but for other members it's strange:dunno:

    The above applies, I think:dunno::heehee:

        :love30:Yes I can see your point of view but you cannot see mine. I would agree that I do somethings occasionally but do not except others to do the same:yikes:. I can see that I am far from perfect but that is me.:whistle:

        Dianne, I do see your point, but it is a One Street of thinking which only allows you to use the option without question and not others:dunno:

                I'm not sure that I understand any objection to it. :scratch:

                It simply means that someone likes to read your posts and that they get alerted to the fact that you have posted. It doesn't impinge directly upon you as you don't have to do anything about it and it doesn't interfere with what you are posting.

                In fact, it's a compliment to you. :thumbsup: :)

                I can't see any downside to it as, even without 'following you', they could just as easily do a search for your posts if they so wished.

                There are a number of useful amenities on here (as on other forums) and the one I find the best is clicking on 'Watched Threads'. This takes you to a thread that you have posted on so you can see any new posts on it. If you no longer wish to do that you can 'Unwatch' a thread.

                  Well, is it better to be watched rather than followed?

                  Or would both be good.:biggrin:
