    Do you ever feel like some questions on Hub Pages are written from an online translation website?

    I swear that I see some question that make as much sense as "I Love Lamp U?"  Their is one out their currently that is so vague I don't even want to dig deeper into the details of the question.  I don't want to be duped into some sort of looney Bible slap down...It hurts my brain!  How can we get question submitters to improve the questions?

    And I thought the general Hub spellings were bad. Unfortunately, I have seen these crop up once or twice and they're so obvious I'm surprised they weren't flagged before they were even up. My girlfriend in Denmark wants to write some articles for HubPages, but she won't be able to because translation from Danish to English won't run all too well in Google Translate.

    If you see them as bad as your example (I love lamp u), flag it immediately. HP staff are quick to remove that kind of stuff, as far as I know.

    I just bypass those question because they will no get too far. I don't usually flag questions unless they are breaking the rules. Questions that make no sense will disappear really fast as they won't get any answers.

    I don't think it's possible especially if, as you say, some of the questions may becoming from a translation site, as the folks are maybe not likely to know if the question does make sense or not?

    I've certainly seen many of the questions asked here - word for word - from websites that are supposed to give you good questions to ask. I've looked one or two up out of curiosity - no I haven't used any of them here on HP - and they're really the usual run of the mill, boring questions that have been asked a thousand times before. I guess, as Cardisa says, just try to ignore the ones that irritate you.
