      Can a website which is unconsciously promoting so many sockpuppet accounts, be ever a clean place, with nice people and content all around? Junk people will always produce junk when they have no responsibility. It's fun!

    Can you first define 'serious writer'.  Is it someone who takes themselves or their work seriously?

    1. profile image0
      PhenomWriterposted 5 years ago in reply to this

      Don't take it the wrong way- but can you define 'love', 'happiness', 'good' - or those type of abstract concepts?

      Don't say they don't exist!

      1. Mark Ewbie profile image83
        Mark Ewbieposted 5 years ago in reply to this

        Love = feelings for fellow man, woman or pet.  Or food.
        Happiness = when Love is reciprocated.
        Good = opposite of bad.

        Obviously these conceptual things are a bit more detailed - but that's more than enough for an hours worth of forum flaming.

    Hubpages should offer free doughnuts.  I also...am not a serious writer.  I do enjoy doughnuts, however.  And I like when they are free.  No...I am not a cop...or a serious writer...just a guy who likes free doughnuts as he idles away hours at the keyboard.  So that is what it lacks...what it doesn't lack?  It does not lack for providing opportunities to vent my doughnut needs in questions, forums, and hubs.  It's a good place...better with doughnuts...
