(#5gb3dqq) Honestly, the entire follow system is flawed. Check my followers, #3 was a web crawler with a user agent that happened to fit the regex, and #17 was myself requesting my own feed with a simple curl command.
Unfortunately, I don't see a real solution to the problem while keeping the ability for external feeds to show up as "following" a user on a Yarn pod.

(#5gb3dqq) The user agent regex was made a little more restrictive after my git issue, but I think someone could use this and really start breaking things. I want to poke around more than I already have, but I'm not doing it on a live production instance of Yarn.

@mckinley (#5gb3dqq) Hahaha, great fun! :-D I reckon, the following stats need to reset after a specified amount of time (e.g. a week or whatever), so that they get cleaned up a bit over time. Not perfect by any means, but probably a whole lot better than counting a single request from sevens years ago. Unfollow events from other systems aren't propagated to yarnd, so that would take care of this.
