Yeah, you can develop some cool widgets if HubPages had an API.
like display your hubscore, new comments and other stuff in your desktop when your OS loads.

She declined stating that most of the staff are narcissistic head hunters who have a degree in English, play head games with the users they don't like, are unfair in carrying out their hub rules and often help the evil doers on the site if it means...

I found one of my Barbie Doll articles scraped in its entirety and placed on someone's blog. I've determined the blog owner and sent them a "cease and desist" note but it's one of those sites that creates writing platforms for people (blog.com) and I am doubting I'll see any help on this...
