Agree. I also do that with client accounts as well. It's better to have a clean and useful list than one full of bots or inactive accounts.
If it is an individual creating the parody account, and then transferring it to a business does that make a difference?
The article does focus on brands and people in the limelight. There have been a few examples recently in the media of politicians "following" adult-content sites, and being publically flogged for that action. It's always good to be in control of your account.
Your article piqued my interest. I've had the same thing happen to me over the past 2 weeks as well. My one board (http://pinterest.com/JenniferBakerCo/social-media-training/) has increased in followers by 20 (or so) per day for the last 14 days... But it's just that one particular board.
Thanks to you and the other user's suggestions and insight as to the "why"!
