I posted a short new hub on the about English and American language differences about an hour ago. It's not a heavy or serious piece with serious references, but in it I put external links and links to three other hubs which relate to the subject. It never occured to me to ask permission from the other hubbers before I did it. Should I have? and if so what do I do now-- is there an established author etiquette on this?
I think most people see it as a good deed and a kindness. I don't usually ask permission because I assume so and I know I'm always thrilled when someone chooses to link to one of my hubs.
I can't speak for everyone, however, but the logic is that if it gets them more hits, they probably appreciate it.
whew--thanks all of you for the quick response and for easing my mind. I was pretty sure nobody would mind, but thought I'd better check--don't want to make a "hub-gaffe"
Another Hubber recently included a link to one of my Hubs and I was thrilled to bits. It's a compliment, after all.
I would let the other hubber know, though. I would LOVE to know if someone linked to me!

Let me start by saying I'm a true Southerner, and most of us from old Southern families worship the etiquette deity. Have you heard the joke that explains why Southern women don't participate in group sex? Too many...

I think it would be nice if we could earn money from our questions here on hubpages. Still with the 60/40 split just like on our hubs.The only thing I would think would be people posting too many questions, so maybe...
