    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

    Well I've got the same question roaming around my mind since the day I started. Most of those questions simply look like spam but then I have come to realize two things.

    1.- You get badges for questions, no matter how awful they are.
    2.- 75% of the people simply lacks the common sense to google things nor do they have any sort of interest into actually thinking to find the answer.

    I think honestly people aren't thinking before they type or they just pump out what sounds good.
    It makes it look like a person is contributing to HubPages without really contributing at all.
    And sadly for some, there is no spell check. LOL.

    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.
