I think perhaps a little tolerance maybe in order, it is possible that English is not the first language of those who seek answers.
A lot of them are intended for someone who wrote another hub. Each of them has a little box like "Ask so and so a Question" to the right, and the hubpages system drops it in here for everyone else without context.
Lensflare: that sheds a lot of light on the question for me, thanks.
Merlin: My question perhaps would be better rephrased, "why do so many questions here look like spam?"
Well, for one it should be "why are so many of these questions poorly worded" and I think it is just laziness and the fact that people just don't care

I have no idea, but for a writers' website, I see so many spelling errors and badly worded questions.
Because of the dumbing-down of America, prescribed by our own government so that we're easier to control and manipulate.

I submitted the hub for...

Why are Hubbers asking so many question?In many cases, Hubbers ask nearly meaningless questions that don't even need to be answered. If not because they want to learn more about something, why do they ask those questions?

Why so many people write non-sense questions in hub pages? Is this some joke to waste the time of hubbers? Or is it just to ask questions for the sake of asking questions?
