How come most of the questions asked here are from people who have been members for only a few...
minutes and have no hubs and no followers and no avatar. What the hell? Please explain why we should answer questions that seem to be asked by nobody without a profile or any other information. What is this about?
It's called spamming. They're trying to raise their hubscore so they can get 'followed' links.
The quality of hubpages might actually improve if hubpages would put a big 'We Don't Follow Links Ever' on the front page.
HubPages used to promote this section as a place for people to ask questions for others to write Hubs about, but as the site usage has grown, they've allowed it to devolve into a "poor man's Yahoo Answers." A lot of people who stumble in here have no idea what this site is about.
if you look at the options that appear when you cilck on the "flag" button, admin would like site users to alert them to spam, low-quality and other situations so that weak questions can be removed, but sadly, many site users don't bother to help weed out the junk.
Well I've used it to ask what people think about things in politics. I kinda thought this place was more like a poll where you ask questions and hubbers answer.

This is an issue that comes up again and again. I have wondered why it is we see certain, shall we say, prolific questioners asking dozens of questions per day almost. Surely, they couldn't possibly want to know all those things! I endorse the responses of amsmoving, Flightkeeper, and relache, whose answers I just voted up.
Though it was interesting to learn from relache, that this section had been originally promoted as a place to get issues meant to become hubs. I think at least half of my hubs have come from finding questions, here, that I found intriguing.
As for flagging, I only flag questions that are sexually graphic, wildly inappropriate in nature, like the call girl sites that spring up like weeds. Other than that, I'm not all that comfortable flagging content for 'low quality.'
See ya around.
i'm sorry. i totally misunderstood. maybe i should back out of this site alltogether. I thought it would be away to increase my knowledge, not to stay stagnant. I will show you my ignorance, i did not know this would "increase my hub score". I still haven't figured that out. and you are right... perhaps I have no right to answer questions of the elite. Hummmnnn, and as for followers, I wasn't looking for any. Geez... The reason I have no avatar is that i don't know how to put one up... oops, my ignorance is showing again. sooooooooooo, i need to reconsider my presence here. Thankyou for your enlightening question. Oh, here is a thought.... or a small joke.

Do you answer a question it it is in a long series of questions asked?Some people seem to spam questions on hubpages. Do you still read those questions just like others, or do you skip them?
