You're not supposed to hop hubs? The hub hopping tool/feature is for optional use. You can go from hub to hub much more easily. You can read and vote up or down and even flag poorly written content. The only thing you are supposed to do on Hubpages is write quality articles for readers to read.
I think that perhaps it's given as an option to encourage hubbers to read other writers' hubs, and it's an easy way to do it. Just hop around to random hubs, see what you like!
You'll notice on your Statistics page that the link says "Help us out - hop some Hubs".
That gives you the clue why you're supposed to hop Hubs. You hop Hubs so you can help HubPages maintain the quality of the site, by flagging obviously spammy, rude or low-quality work.
I thought it was a fun way to discover interesting articles and figure out what Hubpages is about.

Today I was gobsmacked to see that three of my star articles have been edited and the traffic for these hubs has plummeted and for the first time in 13 months I didn't make the payment cut for this...

There are a lot of terrible junk hubs here that are damaging to all the hardworking writers that are a major source of good content, be it commercial or otherwise.I would love to see as many hubbers as possible flagging crappy hubs with zero appeal.Lets take out the trash.

We've just opened up a new discovery tool that I'm excited about called Hub Hopper. It allows you to quickly browse through and read semi-random hubs that have been published recently, with a bias towards hubs in topic areas that you are following. It also has easily accessible buttons...
