Your reaction makes no sense to me. I'm still following you and there's nothing you can do to change that. We're "connected" in that way until one of us deletes our account (or until I decide to unfollow you).
How many followers do you have? A few hundred? I'd be willing to bet that at least 2/3 of them use some Google product on a daily basis. You're connected to all of them in the same way that you're connected to me.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
