In what world is that okay? Where I come from we treat the people who love our work or follow us loyally like friends--treasures. They should be esteemed, not relegated to grunts who rise up at the call of their master.
I realize some people use this ploy to be funny but it's always had the opposite effect on me.
Maybe I'm too old. Maybe I lack a funny bone. Well...too old anyway.

It's all perception, I suppose. If I follow an author, blogger, or artist, it's because I'm an aficionado of their work. Don't treat me like a flying monkey.
Remember, flying monkeys can poop on your head.
