THe bug has now been fixed, so if you save a route privately nobody will receive a notification about this.
Thanks John for this info. At least I now know it is not something stupid I have been doing. Let us know please if you mange to trace and sort a bug.
We don't currently have a way of blocking users from following you I'm afraid - I can add this to this list to think about. However, people shouldn't be getting notifications of Private routes - that sounds like a bug, so I'll try to get that sorted as soon as possible.
I have the same problem. Been meaning to post this for some weeks - anyone out there that can help us?
Users that follow me get updates on when I create routes with e.g. name of route (even when routes are Private). Can I somehow make this not happen?
