    Not sure if its already been suggested, apologies if it has.

    Liking the follow thread a lot... but also was wondering if you could do similar for follow other posters. I dont have a lot of time to be digging and checking out the latest posts anymore... but I sometimes run across other posters that have similar interests as me.

    Unfortunately i find there are a ton of posters on this site that just talk too much - so weeding through all the noise would be handy.

    Really not sure how that would work in the context of this site.

    I would have a fear that posters might be followed more for bad reasons than for good ones -- for the purpose of flaming them, or pursuing a vendetta.

    I know you can do that - that is more of a stalker thing. What i meant is more of like what conor said - ad a few freinds or group of freinds and it would be easier to follow their discussions/posts... especially if you share common interestes, or maybe live in the same area.
