          You have to stop posting on the same threads I do. Every time someone responds to you, I get confused.

            Maybe since we are kicking this WWE style, maybe the two of you can have a loser changes their name match.

      Thank you Christy Kirwan and all of the Hubpages staff, I am so flattered that you guys thought me worthy
      to win a lifetime award, I can think of a few other Hubbers who deserve this award more than I do and hopefully I will see those names on the list over the next few years.
      I opened my email this morning and almost fell off my chair when I saw that I had won this award, it really means a lot to me and I am proud to accept my T/shirt and mug.
      take care everyone and Happy Hubbing!

    OMG! Community Activist! Really?! Well, I'm just seeing this because I got home late from my monthly block club meeting where we addressed fighting crime in the neighborhood and planning our block party. Ha ha ha big_smile ha ha ha big_smile.
    Seriously, though, thanks for the votes guys. I really do care about this community and don't mind speaking up in the forums about issues that affect us and the site as a whole. Hugs and blessings. smile

    Gee, if I three-peat as Most Likely next year, do I get the job?

    Congrats, everyone!  Well-hubbed! 

    To Jimmy,...dude, lifetime achievement.  In Internet years, that's like two reincarnations extra.

    Now I have to go figure out if I want to change my avatar to look all professional (like an employee) or something more co-forum-queen....

    Hey, I just discovered something really interesting when I hover over my Hubbie Award accolade. This is what it says:

    "(hubber's name) has won a Hubbie Award, selected by our community annually and given to Hubbers worthy of acclaim and infamy!"

    So, was there a time when we had other categories in jest for "bad hubbers," like in the forums? Or maybe it's meant to be funny. Cool beans.

    Here is the definition (Google) of infamy:
    in·fa·my
    ˈinfəmē/
    noun
    the state of being well known for some bad quality or deed.
    "a day that will live in infamy"
    synonyms: notoriety, disrepute, ill fame, disgrace, discredit, shame, dishonor, ignominy, scandal, censure, blame, disapprobation, condemnation
    an evil or wicked act.
    "one of history's greatest infamies"

    Not complaining, just made me say, hmmmmmmm? hmm

      You're right on the money! The Hubbies used to have a category for Most Likely to be Banned in previous years, but we took it out last year because we thought it was a bit unkind and wanted to keep the Hubbies positive. smile

        Thanks, Christy. I had a feeling it was something like that.

      Hmmmmm is so right on, Janshares.
      I'm thinking of Franklin D. Roosevelt - A date which will live in infamy, December 7, 1941.
      Congratulations to you. Nicely done.

    What about Most Likely To Be An Employee isn't infamous?

    1. PegCole17 profile image91
      PegCole17posted 2 years ago in reply to this

      This is true, Relache. Congratulations to you. Infamous? Absolutely. To the point? Without a doubt. Ignominy. Hopefully not.

    I spotted the 'infamous' description a long time ago, but I didn't complain, because in my case, it seemed to be quite accurate.
