I usually access the Hive blockchain with the PeakD interface, so I had not even noticed the new options at the top of our pages on Hive.Blog until they were brought to my attention by someone else. It seemed harmless enough to click the "Acknowledge" button to follow the recommended Mutings/Blacklistigs of Hive.Blog. However, when I did that, apparently, I un-followed everyone on my 'Following List.'
At the time, I didn't even notice that my 'Following List' had been wiped clean. However, I noticed that my 'Following Feed' was empty on every front-end and thought it was a glitch with nodes. After 8 or 10 hours, though, I noticed no one else had reported the problem, so I did. THANKS to @mahdiyari and @deathwing (two great witnesses on the blockchain), we were able to track the issue to a glitch in these new options in the header of our Hive.Blog pages.
So, for now, I recommend not clicking on those options until we know things are working normally! I also hope that my 'Following List' will be restored soon, and is not permanently destroyed. If I was following you previously and suddenly un-followed you last night, please know that it was a mistake and due to a glitch on the blockchain! 😬
