The more e-mails you generate the more likely other (hoster)s will consider you as spammer. If you want to work it like "one notification and then I have to re-visit the board to get more notifications" it's one more mechanism to implement. While it's rather easy to add a link to a user's public profile saying "Follow this user" I guess you also want to have a list of all people which you follow in your UCP to be able to unfollow them all at once (instead of going to each public profile again and clicking on a "Don't follow anymore" link). Then I suspect the next wish is to a list of users which are actually following you...
It can surely be done. But it's complex (additionally to the core parts, like checking who is following the poster and actually allowed to read that post).
In the first place, thanks for answering
You could do that only inactive users, or groups X, may have the option to continue to users
And also (though this is not as needed) what you say to put a list of users who follow you, and you follow you
