    We, the Hubbers, are not puppets.  We are the puppeteers - the masters of our Hubbertry.  If HubPages is a game we are not pawns, but a lot of us are "cards".

    I am master of my own Hubberdashery and swear allegiance to no puppetmaster. We Hubnob here by choice and there may well be some cards, Lisa - and a cad or two to be sure!

    "Merely" the players?  What better thing is there, in a game?

    People do not create these places out of the goodness of their hearts.  They went through the trouble to create this place so the intend to reap the reward.  We can get a bit of reward if we work at it, we are the intellectual property that brings in the ads and the bucks.
