There are new people everyday trying to earn extra cash. Some have been directed here for their articles probably told to brand themselves. Yet, they know very little. Then they are told that they can make big bucks here, but after a hub or two they don't see a dollar let alone big dollars.
Personally, I find people asking questions, in most cases that are sensible, and have nothing to do with their hubs.
I watch for questions and answers every day. I also find hubbers who write in areas I am interest in. I get new ideas, as well as tips.
Believe me, I do not earn anything, receive any benefits that I have noticed for asking or answering questions.
If anyone thinks this is bogus, the next time you have a question, spend hours searching the Internet if you can get through all of the hype sites that are trying to sell the next get rich thing to you.
