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?

@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.
