Does HubPages penalize those who spam questions?
I really like reading and responding to interesting questions, but I can't stand when one person asks several questions in a row. They are clearly asking questions solely for ranking benefit, and it seems to run counter to the culture of HP.
Since HP now has questions on your own subdomain people are just trying to rank and get traffic along with potential clicks. It's irritating but that's how it is
If they aren't penalizing'em, I wish they would start. I used to enjoy scanning thru the questions section but now all I see are dozens of questions, all of which are variations on the same subject, posted by the same people.
I dont know if HP penalizes those who spam Questions. I wish they would. I find it extremely annoying to read what might be classified as 'silly questions', especially when a single user asks a bunch of silly questions in a row.
I have answered before...and got several down votes... but if I see 10 questions in a row from someone I tend not to even look at them.

all the people I see spamming the forums are signing up long enough to post on the forum but aren't writing any hubs. So ... I was thinking. Why not require three hubs from a person before they can post in the forums?...
