Can we have a way to not allow users to follow us?

Right now it may not be a problem, however I know in the past Reddit had a problem with people following users and downvoting everything they posted. From what I understand about the Feed system, it makes it even easier for the user to do that. Is there any plans on allowing users to control who can follow them?

Edit: Sorry for not using a [Feature] tag, I'll try to be more observant of the rule in the future.

    I'm really interested to see if the following feature will have positive or negative effects on the culture here -- I feel like it makes everyone slightly less anonymous, which is both intriguing and worrying. I agree, though -- I feel like when you allow users to follow each other, you should probably also include a private setting or a block feature or something. The community here so far seems to be mutually respectful (aka small) enough that it's not currently an issue, but it would be comforting to know that Snapzu is thinking about potential privacy/harassment issues with this feature

    On a related note, maybe have a way to control how much information about your viewing habits people can see. Maybe the ability to disable the "User active community involvement" when you click their username.

    I'm not sure if you disable upvoting/downvoting after a certain length of time, but if you do, maybe allow the user make those posts invisible until that time period passes. That way a users's history is still visible, but people can't brigade based on that information.
