Today I made a couple of request hubs and as usual the hubs were short. I have put in tags that would allow the writer to expand, but each time there is a short answer. However, what I find funny was one Hub request I made about salad bar bacteria had some very odd comments. The guy told someone they were a backstabber and asked if they were still employed. Gee, did not know what to think about that, especially since the comment before it had either been deleted or he was talking to himself.
That is a little weird! When I answer a request, I try to give as much information as I can. I have noticed a lot of request answers tend to be rather short.
Lol, very strange! I was left a comment the other day (which I denied) because it was just a personal attack at me for bad spelling in my hub (which is strange because I always spell check!)
I think some people just don't understand English that well and they make amateur translation mistakes, either that or they don't realise that us English spell it colour! (the correct way )
Could hub pages not make it more beneficial to you to answer with a normal length hub rather than a short reply? Kind of make it better for your score to give a more in depth answer (or penalize for a short one)
I am surprised Americans still do that. Very immature indeed.
:rolleyes:South Africans also folle the English English, so yes it sometimes does cause confusion.
Hubs from a request for... should be the type of hub you would normally write, same length etc., not just a quickie for the weekly score cards.
The funny thing about the Hub in question though was the man was getting mad at someone whose comments were not showing up on the Hub. I would think he would delete this if he had deleted her comments. His comment to the lady seem like a bizarre personal attack. I wonder if he made this weird comment to get more people to comment on his Hub .

I know that hubpages really pushes for new hubs to be created, and rightfully so. However, I'm thinking it would be nice to be able to "answer a hub request" with an existing hub.So if someone does a hub...

It is one thing to hit a double letter (or to skip and "e" like I almost did in letter, but if English is your native language, it seems to me that you should make an effort to spell correctly and use standard...

My favorite tip (currently) is to find related blogs on my hub article, post a nice comment, and use the url to my hub on that topic in the URL box for most blogs. Some do not have this facility so I have to think about...
