On area51 I just clicked on my own site-proposal "following" link thinking it would show a list of people following the proposal (my fault) and of course it instantly unfollowed my proposal.
Name change or confirmation before unfollowing would be cool. (at least some mouse hover text). Or, a separate link to "Unfollow" maybe.
Possibly something like the Twitter.com convention I would propose that this link show up under "Share This".
