    Do I have to answer questions intended for me from hubbers who have zero followers and zero hubs? Some hubbers have been around here for few months, others few weeks.

      If it's asked of you, other hubbers can still answer the question. If it's a very basic question you can just leave a simple answer. If it's a good question you can write a hub on it.

      Completely up to you. smile

      These are probably not hubbers as such, but people who have come from search engines and then signed up just to ask you a question.

      I get that on a particular hub of mine which is a little frustrating as their questions would be better off in the comments part of the hub, and would allow me to answer more than once. I put a notice at the bottom of the hub in question, asking that people leave their questions as comments rather than in the answers section and it seems to have stopped.

      And no you don't have to answer them - it's completely up to you!

      You don't have to answer any questions at all if you don't want to.  Just click on "Remove from my list".

      Sometimes newbies misunderstand and think they earn money if you write a Hub to answer their question, which isn't true. 

      You can usually tell whether a person genuinely needs help or is just asking for the sake of it.  If it looks like a "for the sake of it" type question, I just remove it. 

      The Questions section was created to help give people ideas for Hubs, rather than as a place to get advice - that's what the forums are for!
