Is it possible to end shameless begging for public notice in the question section of Hub pages?
I get that people want their stuff to be read and they even more like their work to be commented on. I just think that making public announcements instead of insightful questions under http://hubpages.com/question/latest/ is a crass and inappropriate way of going about it. I know that flagging such questions always gets results and for that I am grateful but it really happens too often to want to flag them all.
I don't like that either, but I just ignore them.
The fact is, the vast majority of people don't read the rules before they start doing. Whether it's putting a flat-pack together or here, they just go off and do.
What they're doing seems almost like going into a pub and shouting at the top of their voice.
Unfortunately, you can't educate pork.
You're absolutely right Jagged. A short while ago there was a suggestion that questions should have a vote up/down button; that might make some disappear. It would also be useful to get rid of the call-girl spammers, the written in gibberish, the statements, and the written in a foreign language.
The moderators don't really seem interested in the question section.
It's almost total spam. I really just parse it for the hub juice. It's sad though because it could be a legitimate forum for real questions. Instead it's clogged with bizarre questions (and non-questions) you can't imagine anyone organically asking you in real life.
Hubpages is a great site with a great future - but the Q&A desperately needs moderation.
If you see inappropriate posts, flag 'em. Plain and simple. It only takes a second.

Do you notice how people read into a questions you post on HubPages?Someone will answer the question as if you need help when in reality the question had no relevance to you personally. For example; "What would life be like if there were no music?" This question does not imply how I...

Is it actually possible to say something on Hubpages without bringing God or Jesus into it?I can't believe someone asked a question that has nothing to do with God and the 'best' answer was a 'scriptural' response. The world does not revolve around God/Jesus. It revolves around money,...

It used to be possible for the asker to close a Question, and I've done this successfully a few months ago. However, now I cannot find the option for that anymore. Am I doing something wrong or has the 'close this question' option been removed? I looked in 'my account' under...
