    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.
