    I don't know - some mean ones are certainly over 45, but I would like to know what the heck is an average hubber - I have yet to meet one of those big_smilebig_smilebig_smile ...and who let him in here anyway? We should definitely know at least his age...

    okay - so let's go for the oldest hubber - I am closer to 60 than 40, so I may be the oldest, but do not want to claim it. I do not think I am a meany (maybe sometimes!). So any other babyboomers on here? (I know you are out there. . .)

    1. Lisa HW profile image68
      Lisa HWposted 10 years agoin reply to this

      elayne, I can think of at least one over-80  - maybe a couple (although those others  may only be over 70).  There are "tons" of Hubbers in their 60's on here.  I'm a Baby Boomer (but I always like to point out that I'm from the "second crop" of Boomers - not that bunch that are already 60.   smile   ).  There are also "tons" in their fifties.   The fifties and sixties Hubbers may not be the majority; from what I've seen, they're still a pretty big crowd.   smile   People in their forties do look like they're - maybe - an even bigger crowd.   smile

    there are two main group of hubbers I think.
    ~21-30, most of the Asian spammers and sub-standard sub standard writers like me are in this group.
    ~40-50.

    30-40 and 50-80 are rare groups.
