    Just because you're not paranoid, it doesn't mean they're not watching you. LOL

    im a nightstalker, but i don't "stalk" people at night. i assume it means if you make a post it alerts those who 'follow" you, kinda like getting one's feed on your facebook page if you "friend' them , but in reverse. several 'follow" me, but i dont "lead" them lol
