Why do so many hubbers not bother to proof-read their hubs before publishing them?


I have read some shocking hubs from top-ranking hubbers and the mind boggles as to how they manage to get up so high in the rankings. Honestly some of them sound like 12 year olds. Their grammar and spelling are appalling and the vocabulary isn't any better. I think HP should take those things into consideration also because poorly written hubs really do reflect badly on HP and this affects all of us in the end.

    Thank you for pointing out that my hub has errors in it, I will correct those soon. I probably didn't have my glasses on when I was working on it and yes a team of volunteer editors would be a great feature to have on HP.

    No one is perfect and I still find errors in some of my hubs, even after proof-reading them and publishing them (and others have found them too, lol). I think it's easy to distinguish typos from poor literacy skills or lack of proofing.
