    I have a question on a hub that is the actual topic of a recent hub.  So the question is "What is an inverted or covert narcissist? Is this the same thing as a dependent personality type who is just dependent on narcissists?"  and the hub directly answer that question: … Narcissist
    Instead of just hiding the question I'd like to answer it by just saying See: with the link.  This way it will show on the hub with the question and refer to a closely related hub.  Anyone know if I'm allowed to do this?

      I link to other hubs in my answers all the time. No problem so far.

        But what if that is the answer?  I would literally be repeating what is in the article to answer the question.

          So a brief paragraph to answer the question, then "I have an article that answers your question in much more detail: <link>.

      I refer back to my own articles often because they answer the questions the person is asking. Sometimes they ask a question answered on the article, so  knowing they just dumped a question on me and didn't bother to read the article, I tell them to read the article. I waste enough time on these lazy people. Doesn't anybody read anymore?

        If you answer well and thoroughly that question and answer may earn you some cash.  Being snarky (as I was today) won't.

          It's sometimes irresistible though, isn't it?

    I would say
    "An inverted nacissist is (whatever you want to say). If you would like to read more about this subject, you can read another article at ....."
