A few weeks ago I noticed for the first time that the Requests feature on Hubpages was renamed "Answers". I wondered if it was just a matter of "new label, old feature". I'm pretty sure now it's not. "Requests" used to be a way to get another Hubber to write a complete hub on a topic of your choosing. I got some pretty good answers to some questions I'd been wondering about that way.
Now, I recently posted a request ... well, a "question" about the economic reasons behind the rise of High Fructose Corn Syrup. I got an answer -- and it was only a paragraph long. There were no capsules. There was no place to comment. There was just a "vote up" or "vote down" feature. I voted up, because in a single paragraph, the answer was good. But... I was hoping for a whole in-depth hub!

Is there an etiquette with regard to getting requests and not answering them? Somehow it just seems rude to delete them and ignore the requester; but if we e.mail them to politely decline there's the chance that...
