More interesting and challenging hubs don't get comments and recognition i.e. current events,why?
Hubs that get lots of comments and won hubs everyday only among these categories cooking,knitting,crochet,household sections,kinds of foods but not on more important topics like world issues, social issues,environment,politics,news,exotic countries other than US of A.
I guess people don't want to get into a whole political or social debate more than they just want to share something interesting, personal or beautiful.
Or if they are like me maybe they don't feel like they have anything to add to 'big events' and prefer to just leave that to people in the know.
Not sure what the reason is, but it'll be interesting to see other answers.
another factor besides what digitskyes mentioned is when people are using search engine information they are searching for the more "plain jane" information rather than the controversial issues that make you think and evoke emotion. therefore, more traffic is directed to these hubs.
The reason HubPages features rather neutral topics is because they figure such articles will appeal to a broader audience.
I too would like to see more interesting front page content, but I know where to look for it on HubPages. There is an option to "follow" categories on HP, so if you want to read more thought-provoking pieces, just click the follow button and you will get notifications when new pieces are published.

I like a great feature in "Crackberry", the Blackberry website for a cool ads feature. They have Google ads sponsored by Google appearing every 10 or so comments down a comments section. I won't add links here...

Hi, I wonder why I can't edit comments for what seems to be older hubs. A yellow box immediately appears, instead of the edit box, when I click on edit. I don't have this problem with newer hubs, or with Q&A.
