    It works like this.

    I will post a Quote, the next Hubber have two choices:
    1- If he has another quote or proverb with same meaning he can replay on mine.
    2- Otherwise he can post a reply & others will replay to him if they have a one with same meaning.

    I hope we will mention Names for the quotes.
    You can post as much as you can.
