I see people writing about how they are starting a blog here on Hub Pages, and I am tempted to leave a comment that Hub Pages is not a place for blogs, or to send them an email that this is not for blogs, but Haven't. It drives me crazy when I read that though. Do any of you leave comments like that or send them an email message?

My concern with that is your friends will join HP and start to blog about their personal life or opinions - which will result in them having a bad experience, because they'll have their Hubs unpublished. I usually say I write for an online magazine.
None of my family members are likely to join HubPages any time soon so that's not a concern. I have enough trouble getting them to bother reading my Hubs when I send them the links. Haha.
That's a very tactful way to handle it. So many of us put time and effort and research into our hubs, and nothing against blogging because I have a blog myself, but Hub Pages is a totally different format.
With you there. While I see a distinction I am fairly new to the format and I find that it is far more appealing to my sensabilities than blogging is-it is more self contained, more disciplined and more focused to me than what blogging is.
It's true most professional blogs are informative, like HP. However, most people who join HP saying "I'm starting a blog" are internet newbies who still think a blog is a personal diary. And blog posts are very short compared to Hubs
That's a good idea. I hadn't thought of flagging them.
