When hub hopping do you read hubs with terrible grammer and spelling?
I find that I enjoy hub hopping, but I hate that many have terrible grammer and spelling. My personal pet peeve is not using a capital I or spacing after punctuation. I am not great in either of this areas, but I do spell check and proof read before publishing. I often find I skip these hubs, or vote them down.
Well the intent of the hopper is that you flag those hubs for moderation.
what i do if i see a poorly written hub...i vote down and leave comments on the hub...if the owner doesn't correct it....with time....the hubs course will drop and no one will read it
grammar and yes I do read them because we all make mistakes. Also, many here do not have English as their first language, but they still have valuable knowledge to share. Some are harder to read than others, but I try to make my judgments based on the content and intent of the hub. If it is truly bad and makes no sense then I flag and move on.
I do read those hubs, at least part way through. And as mentioned, I do flag them if they are very bad. That can bring down the quality of the site and that's not good for anybody. It is definitely a pet peeve of mine as well. I'm not perfect or anything, but if it's full of errors, I flag it.

I would say that more than half of the articles I randomly encounter are clearly nothing but spun...

When you are "Hub Hopping" do you make a comment?I never know if I should write a comment or just read, give it an up or down, flag it, and just move on to the next one.

What does everyone think of the new "Hub Hopping" process?Maybe, it's just me, but it is a little frustrating, and it was fun, but now? Not so sure about it. I may just need to adjust to it and keep at it before I make any final conclusions.

I was really excited when I saw this new feature because I thought it was a great way to support, get to know and interact with other hubbers...But...for the most part, with some exceptions it is a load of garbage. When I think of all the painstaking time I take putting a hub together...and I...

I like hopping hubs, learning new things and meeting other hubbers. However, I have absolutely no interest in reading hubs on religion, politics, poems, fictional stories or some far away place I will never visit so I skip them. Usually this is no big deal but I just hopped about 30 hubs and no...

I decided to give hub hopping a try. I was curious to see how good (or bad) the hubs were. I found some good hubs, others not so much. After about my second or third hop, I came across a hub that read alright for the first two or three paragraphs, and then quickly devolved into some kind of...
