    Why are there some writers who score 90 or above article ratings with terrible grammar and...

    writing style? And very good writers get the crap? Do I see worldwide people boycotting American writers and favoring only the southern ones?  tisk tisk...

    It seems, looking at the questions, answers, and Hubs on HubPages, that grammar, spelling, and writing style count for little.  Lots of crap Hubs with lots of backlinks and pageviews from within HubPages and via search engines will result in good author scores.

    Ditto for the Internet as a whole.  The equivalent of author score on the Internet as a whole is site income.

    While a HubPage author score of 90+ is good for ego-boo, as long as it is above the cutoff score to keep an author's links from being tagged "nofollow", he's OK.

    I think -- but verify this -- that score is 75.

    Note that most of us have English as second or third language. So it's not that easy to put grammar in place where it is supposed to be. Every non-english writer tries his best to improve hubs, by writing more i can see the quality improved over time.

    Besides that backlinks/marketing people produce hubs from machine/rewriter so expect some crap hubs.Nothing like american or queens english favor, it's just everyone is after money.

    In regards to your statement, because when you study depending upon which books you read, what is grammatically correct differs. What you deem as punctual is a matter of what you have studied.  Personality also is a factor I believe. You can read someones article and never have met them and make an assumption on your character.
