I agree with you. There are many people like you who enjoy lot in HubPages by writing, actually writing what they like and what they know. I read many hubbers' comments & ideas for last 2 months. Most of them enjoying writing in HubPages.
But Im here to earn money, in that aspect Im enjoying HubPages a lot. I start to earn good extra income during last 2 months. (Im waiting for my first check from Google Adsense).
Anyway I think you should discuss this kind of subject in the forum not here... :)
