Why are there suddenly pop up windows when I explore Hubpages?
Though my system is set up to block pop ups, I have been experiencing the last two days, those annoying pop ups! One of them was a short hubpages survey....seems harmless....then after answering 3 questions, I get moved to a personal information page asking to give me a quote on insurance! Looked at an Answer to explore in hubpages and when I clicked on it to answer about Prayer....I got another pop up about joining a prayer circle. What is up Hubpages?
That is very interesting. I have not experienced any popups on hubpages so I don't know why that would be occurring for you. Perhaps it is not from hubpages? Just a thought, unless there are others with the same problem.
I would install an anti-spyware/adware program like ad-aware, or something like that. Probably has nothing to do with Hubpages. I've never had pop-up ads on HP
You probably have some adware on your computer. Are the ads relevant to things that interest you? If you see things related to something you recently searched for then you have adware. All you have to do is clear the cookies in your browser according to whatever browser you are using. You have to do that every once in awhile because they do add up and they make your computer sluggish.

Why do people ask questions on Hubpages that they could ask Mr. Google?I understand the concept of building the Hubpage community and dipping into the vast knowledge contained therein, but if you are seeking a factual answer to a question, perhaps Google might be a good place to look too. Or...

Why are "questions" found under "answers" in the explore menu?I know questions have always been found under the answers link-- I'm just curious why. It disturbs my delicate psyche every time I want to see the latest QUESTIONS. Didn't mean to shout.

Why have I gone from a level 7 commenter to a level 5?I leave comments every day here on HP and yet I have helplessly sat by and watched my commenter level drop from a 7 to a 5 and quite honestly I have no idea why.
