If people without hubs were restricted from participating in forums. It would cut back on spam and other nonsense.
You have a point. The only concern I have is that a newbie might want to get help to set up their first Hub.
That would seem to be true. I did not go near the forums until I had written some hubs, and did not know you could write here without a hub until a few months ago when I started to come here to the forums.

This is opposed to last year when I saw competition become more important then being neighborly. I am happy......It sure makes for a better writing...
