Please to meet you and a BIG Canadian welcome to the HUB you will find your way around here like we all do eventually. Have fun and enjoy yourself don't let people get to you, it's all in fun and jest, although it pays to be thick skinned in some forums:0)))
I was once accused of being the head of an "international gang of Hubbers," in an email that CCed Geraldo Rivera and the Attorney General's office. It is one of my very favorite conspiracy theories (and yes, there are plenty) about me/HP as a whole.
It was hard to decipher... The emails from this fella were always extremely long and without paragraph breaks. They were written in such a way that they seemed like they should make sense, but somehow, they did not at all.
Well, right now you are in the forums. The forums here move pretty quick, depending on the number of people paying attention to a thread/topic.
The political and religious forums are the roughest places to be, so a suggestion is to stay out of those- if you're thin skin.
If you're not taking Pearldiver's remarks as humorous then, I would suggest staying out of the "political" and "religious" forums.
However, you're welcome to do as you please, mine is only a suggestion.
As for being impatient, well, that could work against you and frustrate the hell out of you, depending. It's hit or miss. As for the wanting of 200000 followers...it isn't likely to happen. But, good luck with that.
I am from Planet X where kittens run the show - but now I live in California, where kittens have to be nice or get chomped by wicked dogs. I am being nice, in my own kittenish way. HubPages is very international - that's one reason I love it so.
Hi ! I was born in Newport Wales, moved to New Zealand age 5 , lived North & South Island, sailed to Australia , lived QLD NSW , moved to Wales for a few years- visied Europe as well as America , now on our travels around Australia , based in Morawa Western Australia at the moment.! Love hearing from people everywhere !
Maybe more like 3/4, since my dad is American but grew up there. Mum's 100% Canadian, all the way. Has been living in the States on a green card for 30 years, and refuses to become a US citizen. "Steals" jobs from Americans, too. But of course, since she's not Mexican, nobody cares.
Ok. has anyone ever read a book called something like "The Hyphening of America"? If you were born in the U.S. then you are American, folks. No one cares about anyone who is here LEGALLY--no matter what their origins. My late ex-mother-in-law lived most of her life as a legal resident of the US/Canadian simply because her late hubby wanted to move to New Zealand and it's easier for Canadians to move to NZ than Americans. Eventually she decide to become an American citizen and took the proper steps to do so. Anyway, the answer to the original question is NO not everyone here is an American but HP is based in America. I always find it interesting how these things go from "yes" or "no" questions to long discussions of other topics.
I am surprised. I yesterday posted this topic 'Can Science explain everything?'. This hubber came out and gave me some answers. Now as I have provided him some reasons, he hot hurt and started to post nasty personal...
I'm sure this comment will bring out all the smartass hubbers. And I'm sure you will all visit me with more smartass comments. Well, I'll just count how many of you are out in hubberland then I will go on with my day.
