    Okay, if the people who make hubs are hubbers, then are the people who read them hubees?  It seems that they would have to hubees in my opinion, and I'm not sure how I feel about that.

    By the way, I may as well say hi.  Believe it or not, this is the first time I've posted on any forum ever, and this is what I chose to ask.  Go figure.

    Hey Rick,

    Welcome to HubPages!

    I think it might be better to think of it in a different way. The HubPages Members, slang is hubbers, but are Author/Writers/Publishers.

    Authors/Writers and Publishers are all readers. I am not sure there is a slang word for readers, that applies to HubPages.

    I only say that, because our readers are consumers or technically, clients for advertisers. Those who write sales material are resellers, so the people who visit are consumers.

    I do hope you enjoy your time here. smile

    Hi rick:

    Welcome to HubPages - I hope you enjoy your time here.

    I don't agree with Pcunix - my readers are discerning, intelligent fellow human beings drawn by the world renowned prowess of Wilderness to read his hubs.  And if you believe that, I have a bridge for sale.....

    Have fun here - it's a great place with great people.

      I said "some  might say".  I call them New Readers and Regulars.  Many I can call Friends.

        [raises hands in defeat]  Yes, that is the best term - friends - for as many as possible.  Even better than new readers and regulars! Peace unto you, Pcunix! smile

    Welcome to the worldf knowledge, Hubpages. Look out for some good hubs on the topic hubpages and you'll find it helpful.

    And, i call my readers 'Hubbies'. Readers are the strength of every writer/hubber, so Pcunix don't call them just 'traffic. Wooohooo
