    Sorry if old, but I swear I just have threads randomly turning up as ones I "follow".

    I think it auto follows ones that you have posted in a few times. At least it seems that way, I may just be spasticated and click happy.

    Nah.

    I haven't even posted in the Fez 2 thread, I just clicked on it once and it had me following it, and now randomly I'm not following it anymore.

    OK, I'm pretty certain this is a bug. I'm now following the Diablo 3 thread and I swear I didn't click on it any time recently, if ever.

    Definitely, I always get it at home. Also, I'm not logged in at work and it says I'm following stuff.

    If you have games in your game library on your EG profile, I think the site automatically sends you a PM whenever anything related to them is published. I'm constantly getting spammed with PMs from the site all the time about some games just because they're on my gamercard.

    I'm pretty sure it's nothing to do with any auto-follow. It seems to be either random or it's giving you someone else's followed threads, which would be slightly worrying from a security perspective.

    I've had it happening for about 6 months.

    I have no games in my EG profile so it's nothing to do with that.

    And now I'm not following Diablo 3 again, despite having not having done anything to affect that.

    Perhaps slightly related - I've been randomly automatically logged in to another user's profile more than once.

    Once it even decided to give me moderator privileges for some reason.
