Should there be a quality standards policy for submissions in the Hubpages Questions section?


I've noticed a few Hubpages members use a great deal of bad grammar and/or txt abbreviations when posting a question in the Questions section here at Hubpages. Some of these Questions are so poorly written or littered with slang that I feel they may take away from the overall professional presentation of the site. Do you think there should be a quality standards policy set into place for public Questions submitted by members?

    Thank you DS, and you're very right. And it would be wrong for me to think anyone can flawlessly use correct grammar every single time they sit down to write. I'm just tired of seeing what appears to be pure indifference or laziness from a few.

    Hi relache,

    I've always reserved the flag option for Hubs or other items I have found abusive in some manner, and bad grammar or txt'n -as much as I dislike it- just doesn't seem to be in the same ball court as deliberate abuse.

    DrMark1961, I don't have the power to ban anyone, lol. And no, I wasn't talking about you.
