What are some of the things that annoy you when looking at low quality hubs?
This is a good question.
Probably the worst mistake is not understanding the system and the rules.
If those who are interested in becoming involved, take a time to actually READ-- faq's, learning center, and other hubs that have been posted-- they will do much better.
Lack of patience is the biggest mistake. A little study and homework helps, too.
a rant on a controversial topic and then no comments capsule - and if there is a comments capsule, deleting comments they don't like or getting on their high horse with comments
Poor English and spelling all the way through the hub. I can forgive writers that don't speak English as their main language, but others drive me crazy.
i definitely made the mistake of not participating enough on my old profile. with this one, i'm trying to start off right!
"What are some of the things that annoy you when looking at low quality hubs?"
What annoys me is thinking "I published that and now I'm going to have to write it all over again".
This may not be a 'worst mistake' but, it is a pet peeve of mine.
When I take the time to read a hub, comment on it in an intelligent way (not just superficial fluff) and receive NO acknowledgement for my comment. It blows my mind!
So, after checking a few times, if there is NEVER a reply (b/c people do get busy) I just delete the idea of following them.

There seem to be many hubbers who have no published hubs and are still allowed to comment on other people's writing. While there are some hubbers who are simply new and asking questions before diving in, it seems that...
