This is a joke! I keep getting stupid questions showing up. They are personal questions to hubs and what I have seen have no relevance. This is a waste of space and time to have to close the screen when it pops up.
I agree, the questions that I've been asked are either stupid or make no sense. It feels like HP is trying to force us into some sort of participation thingy that I have no interest in. If I had wanted to answer a question, I would have visited that section. Since I have my next 250 hub topics planned out, I probably won't be answering any of them soon.
Actually I would be interested in knowing if some people are enjoying them. Maybe I'm just anti-social or too narrow minded. So if you've gotten some good ideas from these, please let me know to give these things a second chance.
This is a section initially to help create an ideabank from hubbers to hubbers.
If you're not happy about the sharing, then try making your own site or finding other means. I wouldn't think of it as adsense hoarding by any means. Without HubPages we wouldn't have any source of extra income.
Thank high heavens someone brought this up. I thought these questions had to be a really bad joke. As if I have a speciality on dog food which was my last question, What is the best dog food for a Itzu?? Which I have no knowledge of or ever written about this breed of dog.
adrienne2, I had a similar question that was posted toward one of my dog food hubs. about Shih Tzu puppies and best dog food for them. I agree that it is a joke; the section used to be a great place to go for ideas, but not anymore. I am surprised that the HubPage team hasn't taken not to all the complaints since they changed the section up.
Well folks. The question of the day showed up on my stats page as usual… This also triggered my recollection that asking 10 questions gets you one of those pretty accolades… At least one hub has confirmed this.
this come from the fact that cats almost always survive falls by twisitng gracefully and landing on their feet. In history this lead to superstitions about the numerous lives of cat but they are justthat,supersttions with no basis of truth.
Two friends of mine had TV sets from Vizio and they both experienced the same problem: after a while the TV just wouldn't turn on. Plus, from what they told me, the customer service is not satisfactory at all.
Just opt out with one click and it won't be back for 24 hours. Personally I like it being there. Makes it more likely for me to participate more. I do understand how it could be annoying to some Hubbers.
It isn't just annoying to some Hubbers, it's bad form in every way...these questions are hardly coherent (as others have said). They occupy prime real estate that could be used for better purposes (even Google ads [forgive me for that thought!]), and they contribute to the dumbing down of what used to be a great feature where Hubbers could pose questions that elicited Hubs instead of one- or two-line answers and quips.
When I click that "X", I want the feature gone forever, not just for 24 hours. It's a huge annoyance as well as a lousy representation of a site that's supposed to encourage writing.
This question (which is currently featuring on my "My Account" page) has surely got to win the "stupidest question posted on a public forum" award:
"I returned my bottle of remaining pills on RMA 3709 on 10/15/2010 and Jason Berg signed for the return via UPS. I received a refund and as of today you have charged my account again. Why have you charged my account when I have returned the unused product? Phil S******** email@example.com"
Hi, I wonder why I am suddenly banned from answering questions. Is the ban permanent or temporary? I have written to the HubPages Team but I thought that I may be able to get a faster response here. Is there a guideline...
I think it would be nice if we could earn money from our questions here on hubpages. Still with the 60/40 split just like on our hubs.The only thing I would think would be people posting too many questions, so maybe...
Yesterday, I posted a question in the Answers section. After doing so, I received an immediate response that my question needed moderation. After a few hours, I went back to see if it had been approved. However, it was...
All of us that have visited the question section know that much of the content there is of very questionable quality. It's difficult to see how many of the questions really contribute to the community or discussion on...

So, I understand that the question-answer section is to inspire hubs, BUT it feels a little disingenuous to use the information everyone provided, especially when that information would fit nicely in a list. I...
