Where did the Hub Hobber go? I have actually even gone outside Hubpages to do a search of Hubpages trying to find it.
Don't take this unkindly, but that is quite an interesting typo.
Definition of "hobber" from Merriam-Webster
1: a machine used for hobbing
also : the operator of such a machine
2: a pitched horseshoe or quoit leaning against a stake or peg without ringing it
— called also leaner
Now we just need to know what "hobbing" is. I have not looked so if it turns out to be something obscene, do not blame me.
Haven't heard that phrase in awhile. My guess is that it has gone to that big electron heap in the sky.

I miss the Hub Hopper...it was a lot of sadistic fun going through it and flagging junk/spam articles, haha
Yes, it was discontinued some time ago. In its place we got the Mechanical Turk assessors and more HP editors (although you can still flag stuff yourself). I myself found the hub hopping experience pretty depressing, there was so much terrible stuff on here until relatively recently, I generally tried to ignore it as it seemed overwhelming - a bit like when most emails you got were spam.
Well, I was gone for a while focusing on blogging and Facebook. By "Mechanical Turk assessors," please tell me you don't mean the site where they pay people two cents an hour to work.

There is a new Hub Hopper that is available today. I've posted some details about it on the blog and set this thread up to discuss it and to get feedback. *Note, the Hopper is only collecting data right now, but will soon be used to select Hubs to feature.

I like hopping hubs, learning new things and meeting other hubbers. However, I have absolutely no interest in reading hubs on religion, politics, poems, fictional stories or some far away place I will never visit so I skip them. Usually this is no big deal but I just hopped about 30 hubs and no...
