Is it true that your hub score reduces if you link to hub pages with non relevant hubs?
that's not fair you should not get penalised for linking to a hub you find intresting!.
Hub score computation is unknown outside of people from hubpages.
However, I believe linking to unrelevant hubs do affect hub score because you are not making more informative around the topic that you are writing and it is the intention of hubpages that hubs helps people find the information they need.
Put yourself in the shoes of your reader and you will find unrelevant links annoying and it will also not help your hub score.
HubScore is computed as follows:
- Amount of traffic - including percentage from reputable sources other than HubPages
- The reputation of the Hubber - your Hubber Score and contribution to the community
- The response of readers to your Hub - including comments, thumbs up, etc.
- The uniqueness of content - copying content already available on the web will be penalized
You can see that linking to non-relevant Hubs isn't mentioned there.
There are other reasons for NOT linking to non-relevant Hubs.
One, most of your readers find your article because they're looking for information on a specific subject. You're going to annoy them by providing links to irrelevant material.
Two, if you write a short Hub then include links (e.g. in a RSS feed) to many irrelevant Hubs, you may dilute your keywords.

I am not looking to name names here as this happens quite a lot on Hubpages, but can someone please clarify whether or not it is against the rules for a Hubber to come to your hub, leave a comment and then include a link to one of their own hubs as a part of that comment. I know it says under each...

To satisfy my own curiosity, I would like to know why one of the hubs that was transferred from Squidoo, has such a low "hub score". I have gone over it with a fine-toothed comb, and cannot figure it out. It currently has 11,945 words, many photos, and is - in my opinion - informative....

My hub scores range from 65 to 87 as of the last time I looked. My average is 73. To me it seems like I have a "C" average. I'm disappointed and discouraged. I am doing everything that is recommend to get a good score.It is disheartening not to get a feedback. For...
