In a previous life I did research in computer science.

My current job is as a "personal assistant" to my dogs. I have two dogs, a male Shiba Inu called Sephy and a female, three legged Siberian Husky called Shania. They are both very silly and a whole lot of fun.

My main interests are: Dogs, Wordpress, and 3D-art.

I also like writing down all my crazy ideas which is why I am on HubPages. Other hobbies include reading sci-fi and fantasy, playing RPGs, online gaming, anime, and Salsa dancing.

What I like most: New ideas. Any form will do.

What I dislike most: People who spend all their time tearing down or copying ideas instead of creating their own.

There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, Than are dreamt of in your philosophy. ~~[William Shakespeare]

"The trick is to learn how to pick out fools. Look for those who think things simple, who abhor uncertainty, and who are incapable of setting aside their summary judgment. And above all, look for those who believe flattering things. They are the true path to wisdom. For the claims they find the most absurd or offensive will be the ones most worthy of your attention.”

~~[Bakker, R. Scott (2011-04-14). The White Luck Warrior (p. 381)]

        Hubbers who are also freelance writers

        6 years ago

        Is there a good way to search for hubbers who are also freelance writers? It would also be great to be able to search on writing rates and favorite topics.If not, I think this would be a useful feature to add.

        If a hubber keeps getting flagged for publishing duplicate content from other sources (not their own), will they eventually get banned? Or is it HubPages policy to just remove the flagged hubs? Just curious.
