    I have used the questions/answers forum to gain opinions on controversial subjects I intend to write about however since many of my articles are about subjects most folks aren't aware of to begin with it can be problematic to get any useful feedback.

    I don't know how many times folks have left comments stating that this is the first they have heard of the information I relayed in my articles, so often my speculation based on research catch many off guard.

    The path to the truth has many obstacles but the view is breath taking!

    I intend to in the future because it's plain to see that some questions create a wide and varied response from all sorts of readers. These answers could be used as source material - not copied down verbatim but used statistically for example, or considered for short quotes.
    In the past I've seen quite substantial answers given that would easily transform into hubs - I also recall a questioner asking the answerer if they could meet halfway and produce a shared hub because the topic had hit a raw nerve on HubPages and the answers were of such high quality.
