Why do people follow questions on here without answering them?

It’s annoying that I get a “follow” but no ANSWERS to my question.

    because they are interested in seeing the answers other people provide

    Could be they have no answer but want to see what other people give as an answer (they may be curious about that topic too).

    Could be they follow it in order to move it or see if it gets moved.

    Could be they're stalking you or someone who commonly posts to questions with the same topic or in the same category.

    Reasons vary. Nobody is required to answer any question, so if the followers can't provide a quality answer to the question, it's best they don't post to it.

    Usually they have the same question and want to know the answer.

    Seems pretty self-explanatory.

    I do this myself sometimes, for the reasons other people have already given. Mainly it's when I find the question interesting but don't know the answer, so I mark it to look at again later.

    People may Follow the Question and not Answer it Because they dont know the Answer to the Question but may be Interested in Learning what the Answer is

    If they dont know the Answer then the Policy is to Skip it and move onto the next Question

    Either they really like the question or because they want to answer it later.

    Sometimes, they want to know the answer to the question too......so they star it, hoping to look at it later, and read the other answers.

    I sometimes do that on the movie board........when I want to know the name of the movie, because it sounds good from the description, but I don't know the answer.

    So they can, later on, move them to different categories and kept track of them.

    In some cases, they want to know the answer also. In others, they reported the post and want to make sure it drops.

    Because they've wondered the same thing, so not knowing the answer, they want to know what people answer.
