    have you ever contacted a hubber?

    there is a "contact this hubber" option on profiles.  Has there ever been a time when you were compelled to contact one? If so, (and if it isn't too personal) what was it that you felt the need to contact them over?  Have YOU ever been contacted by a fellow hubber in this way? How was that experience for you?

    Interesting.....
    I was contacted by a fellow hubber on Monday. She was looking for advice on how to handle her spouse with regard to him always pointing out her flaws while never acknowleding his own. :-) I gave her my opinion.
    The experience was not bad at all.

    NOTE: However once you reply to an hubber (your personal email address will be revealed). Of course you can always block their email address in the future if things became creepy.
    If you ever reach out to a hubber and never get a response don't take it personally. It's very possible they are just not comfortable exchanging their information.

    I have and to my chagrin, was expected to write a program, arrange for typists and all because I answered a question.

    Fortunately, I ignored the person concerned and that was that.

    I must confess I get a little weirded out when hubbers I have previously had no previous contact with start contacting me via my email.

    There are some I don't or wouldn't mind though and I think they know who they are.

    I have never contacted a hubber in this way. I'm always so worried that it would come off "creepy" or "weird" and I don't want to freak anyone out.  again, I worry and over analyse things way too much sometimes (just part of my charm I guess).

    I haven't been contacted in this way either, since I have not enabled that option on my profile.  It isn't that I'm snobby - I just am horrible at checking me emails & wouldn't want to offend someone by not responding. 

    There are a few hubber who write well written material, leave great feed back on my (and other hubbers I follow) hubs, responded in Q&A, and/or exchanged some debate in the forums which I wouldn't mind getting to know a little better on a place like facebook.  But again, I don't want to innitiate an invitation and over step my bounds.
