    Why do people excessively post questions on hub pages when people clearly are not answering?

    Some people answer the questions, but a lot of the questions are philosophical, and should be asked on a forum post.  If people ask a question that can be answered (like this one) people will answer it. 

    As for why people post all these unanswerable questions... I think it helps your hubscore to ask a lot of questions.

    They start off by asking one question, but once they realize that no one's answering they shoot off another question, and so on.

    It's a vicious cycle...

      Some people ask questions to get, as well as give, writing ideas for new hubs.

    Sometimes questions are answered to help give ideas for great hubs.  Maybe we really want to know the answer and are hoping the question will prompt an expert to create a hub to answer it.  The questions are great sources for very successful articles.

    may be its an old technique for building traffic to their hubs!
    or they just unaware of  "FORUMS".
    I still dont know the difference b/w  'need help...' topic in forums and this 'questions'.

    You have answers to your question here, and many others do too. I doubt if anything on HubPages has a plurality of participation. People react to what interests them, and sometimes they react to other things to be courteous. Unanswered questions could give many people writing ideas. They do not always respond even if questions help them. So, an unanswered question is not necessarily futile.
