and/or banned from answering questions in the question section of HubPages?
Don't know. Don't care.
My last question got zero useful responses. Finally gave up and deleted it.
My question before that got thrown out by HP.
My two questions before that continue to get zero love from Google.
Have given up and thrown in the towel on that aspect of HubPages.
I'm also on the verge of throwing in the towel as to writing more hubs, but that's another story.
I'm not sure what you're referring to, but it's obvious that some users spam Q&A with duplicate/similar questions and I would imagine they do the same in answering by referring to their own hubs, answering similar questions repeatedly, insulting others, etc.
You can be banned for answering the same question asked by different members? I've done that when new users asked how to do something at their account. I'm not trying to say you won't get banned, I'm trying to find out if this is true. I surely don't want to get banned for helping other people, but I'll stop if it's going to get me into trouble with HP.
Probably not, it was a response more in relation to people who spam sections of the site with their repeated, similar questions/answers, cross-posting. I would imagine the rules for banning from Q&A are the same as they are for the forums, in most cases, either direct spamming or personal attacks, insults.
No. Sheesh, over the last seven years, I've answered the same half dozen questions a few thousand times.
In answer to the OP's question, why someone might incur a temporary or permanent forum ban is explained here, http://hubpages.com/faq/#forums-violations
From what I've observed there are two things that lead to a permanent ban rather quickly. The first is blatant spamming. The second is users who are habitual personal attackers.
Is this discussion about the questions section or the forums?

There are some troubled men who regularly use forums, and they have not a single hub in their profiles. How come? How is it allowed? I do not get it--- Is HubPages a chat-website?
