    Don't you get irritated when people answer your questions just to paste their hub links?

    I don't mind at all as long as their hub is relevant and provides something of value. If their hub is total 'camel chud' you can always vote their hub down, even only for entertainment value.

    I don't make it a habit to drop links to my hubs for my answers unless it is highly relevant to the question and I'm just to lazy to type and I feel my hub could provide the answer to the question with more detail than just an answer by itself.

    In any case someone who makes a habit of dropping irrelevant links really just sets themselves up for failure anyway. So in a sense you have to feel sorry for their desperation.

    Interesting thought though! What does bother me is finding a hub with 150 words and three links to a Real Site.

    Then upon further investigation, check their account and they have 346 hubs on an account that is 4 months old and you guessed it. Chock full of 150 word hubs all with the same link to the exact same Real Estate website.

    These retarded jungle monkeys have no shame!

    These are the people that really get my goat up.

    But your right, there are plenty of spammers here and it is tending to get much worse. I think it's high time Hub admin made a few changes to make it easier to boot these prolific spam bots.

    I agree, I think that dropping links is self serving. But if you ask a question that I have already written a hub about, why wouldn't I direct you to my hub rather than explain it again?

    I know what you mean.... I get very annoyed at this. I think if you become interested with someone's answer, you'll be impressed upon to look at their profile and peruse their hubs. This is a community, so forcefully advertising your hub is unnecessary.... instead; answer questions well and participate in the forum and your hub views will automatically increase.

    If the link has value to the question and answer I don't mind.

    It's called self-promotion and another person's hub, or question, isn't the place to promote yourself.  From a writer's perspective, I find it rather unprofessional.

    I was just about to ask this question myself.  I still have not clicked on the option below that states "Make a hub about it".  Does that mean that the hub is not yet created when you are answering the question?  And if it's not and you create it by using someones question, then why is that so wrong? 

    When looking for ideas on what to write about, do you not research the internet and look for ideas on what people are talking about or not talking about?  Do you think you would annoy those people you got ideas from?  Are we not all here for the same reason?  I don't know about anyone else, but I'm making money as a Freelance Writer.  I've been doing it but am new to Hub Pages. 

    Ok, well, I won't make a hub out of this lol, but I did do it tonight because I found a question that I was already going to write about anyway.

    Thank you for your question.
