My home page is showing questions. It's interesting to see what is being asked.
The problem (for me) is that I can't see who the question is directed to.
Some of them are very bizarre when they are out of context.
Then, I'm not sure if it was a general question, or something being asked of a specific hubber.
This may be a feature already, but if it is I can't find it.
Somebody (well, it was Mighty Mom) asked me a very general question when I opened an account and I'm glad she did because it got me writing right away. It was a little kick in the butt to get going (thanks again MM)
It would be neat if we could see if the question was intended for a specific person. I don't feel comfortable jumping in with an answer if it was meant for somebody else, and if another person had answered the question that MM asked me, I probably would not have written a hub about it.
My understanding is that you can direct a request to a specific Hubber, but as it's a public request, it's open for anyone to answer. If you want to request a Hub privately, or ask a question of one specific Hubber, then you would use the "contact" facility on their profile.

I noticed that I have gotten at least two questions written directly to me in the answers section. I never go there, I only saw them because they come up in the "recent activities" when you log in. Otherwise I...
