    Should Hubpages regulate questions to prevent spamming? If yes, whats the best way to do it?

    I've just noticed quite a few questions on here that seem to be people spamming random questions about whatever they happen to see. Is there a reason for this? or is it just trying to get to the next level of accolade?

    I mean, a handful of questions, ok, but when you have dozens of unanswered, seemingly random questions, that's excessive.

    Should hub pages put a limit on how often you can post questions, like 3-5 minutes in between. Maybe require you to wait an hour after posting X amount of questions. Would using a reporting system allowing mods to look into be better? What's your idea?

    So here's my dilemma; what is considered the perfect hubber? I am about 2 months into the HubPage thing and I often question if I'm doing it right? People post in forums and Q/A about low hubber scores and the connection to being involved in the HP community. So you ask a couple questions, answer a couple of answers, make a couple of comments and then people start asking; "What's too much"? Then I question myself; "Oh, are they talking about me?" "I thought I was doing what I was supposed to be doing?" Honestly, it seems despite the awesome, comforting, welcoming hubbers there is an equally large amount of SNUBBY HUBBERS. I wonder, "Am I not good enough to correspond with because I'm a hub virgin?" There just seems to be a lot of negativity surrounding how people behave and it's discouraging to a newbie. Yes, I agree that there are shady people floating around that are doing inappropriate things here, but for those that are dedicating their time to become part of the community and create a strong image, shouldn't have to fear their actions. I've been here for 2 months and I can tell you I'm not working for a profit. I just broke $2.00 this week and I don't care because I love a majority of the people here and you could spend the day here lost in all the great articles and conversations. I don't appreciate feeling shunned by some simply because I'm new. I've been the only person in an entire Question page to not have had the author comment to. I have entered into conversations and people will talk above me an below me and act as if I'm not there. Should I take the hint that I'm not welcomed by some people or continue to make my presence known so that I am perhaps viewed as loyal and persistent and planning on sticking around here? I don't know.
