There's a similar system on Yahoo Answers and a similar split between 'believers' and 'skeptics.' The believers use it to keep tabs on skeptics
and report them for T&C violations
Any member worth their salt on Y!A disables the 'friends' profile. Also, I once had a guy that followed me
around the questions...creepy and weird!
On ATS, like Jkrog says, I expect some members would be tempted to follow others around looking for conflict and disagreement. I can think of a half
dozen that regularly sail very close to the wind in the tone of their comments.
I only have a few friends on ATS and check their profiles from time to time to support their threads. Try it
