And you can check without hugging:
http://www.toxin.org/cgi-bin/hugs.cgi?hug=[name] will just go to the hugs page without adding any more hugs to the total.
And they don't have to have an LJ. Just put in the right name to be hugged and hug them.
I like it. It's something chaos mages like.
So far, I'm the only one to hug Dubya (by that name). I think he needs a lot more hugs. Maybe then he would be nicer. Hm. Maybe everyone should go hug Georgie with intent and make the world a nicer place.
