Program notes: Follower-spam?

Over the last week or two, I have been emailed a number of notices that I’ve got new followers, but only a few of these seem to be real people. Many of these email notices don’t contain any listing of posts by that follower, and several “followers” seem to have commercially oriented names.

Two questions: 1. Is anybody else getting these lately, and 2. are these fake followers going to lead to me getting new spam every time I add a post?
