I don't know why people try to follow locked accounts when they haven't filled out their profiles, selected an avatar, or done any public posting. Do they like getting rejected?
@starbreaker Maybe it's a very specific denial/sadism kink?
@hummingrain Could be.
Call me the old guy but I still don't understand locked vs unlocked accounts, what the different visibility controls mean for posting and all that. Clearly I didn't rtfm
@paulgatling Having a locked account means that you can vet potential followers before allowing them to follow you. Can be helpful for weeding out trolls and Nazis.
Ok that was how I understood it to work..
