Tedious, boring, bad manners, self publicity? As if one possible extra visit is going to make any difference in terms of income, fame, success, etc.

That's the idea Nate!
Hi Mark.....I think I'll write a hub on this question of yours....wanting to know why people keep saying "I wrote a hub on it," when answering questions, on the forums. I love a challenge.
Now fpherj48 can say "I'm going to write a Hub on it", the sneaky second cousin of "I wrote a Hub on it".
I am commanded to speak in the future........I'm a hard core procrastinator.
Yeah maybe. I just think it is slightly excruciating when someone says "I wrote a hub on it".
I agree, why keep repeating yourself, If you've written something that is helpful that someone else is looking for why not direct to it? If you spam boards looking to always promote that's one thing, but once in awhile not a big deal.
Yep I hate the word hub as well but this was for hubbers not normal people. I just think that "I wrote a hub about it" is probably an overused expression on the forums.
That would be a great inside joke if we were all going out for lunch. Can you imagine being around a table and every time one of us made a comment on politics or raising kids, another one of us chimed in "I wrote a hub about it." Hilarious!
I'm new here (hi!), and really don't understand why every writing site makes up their own name for things. "Hub" might be not the best term, but I don't think anything's worse than the squid cartoons on that other site!
I am referring to the serial 'helpers' - the ones who cannot let a thread go by without mentioning that they wrote a hub on it. Chnace are that everyone and his dog has written a hub on it - particularly if it applies to SEO, HubPages, writing, etc.
