Hubpages is adding hubbers' username as the author name in the Rel="Author" tag. Since many hubbers like me do not use the real name as username, we face problems such as our authorship information not showing up in the Google search result.
I would request hubpages to give the hubbers the option of selecting either the real name or pen-name (username) to be included in the Rel="Author" tag,

A few weeks ago there was an issue with the wrong Google Authorship photos appearing in SERPs (i.e. Marcy's avatar showed up in the snippet for melbel's Hub). It seems to me, that ever since that issue was resolved, no Google Authorship photos show up any longer for any Hubbers. My authorship is...

I was studying the Authorship Markup on the new profile format that has been released for staff only at this time. I noticed that the HTML link to other profiles is coded as rel="me nofollow". This defeats the purpose of rel="me" for Google authorship markup since...
