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!
Thank you so much for the Hubbie award. I am grateful to everyone who voted for me and to everyone else at HubPages for making this site such an enjoyable place for writers. There are some wonderful writers and some lovely people here. Congratulations to all the other Hubbie award winners!
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 ha ha ha . 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.
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"
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.
