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.

Some hubbers are taking the mick with it. It's spamming. It's not allowed in the forums. If you want attention promote yourself according to good manners. Not by over spamming in the questions section.

How do you feel about people spamming the questions section here on HubPages?Any time I see spammers, I report them to get their posts taken down. We need to be more proactive about this because it's bringing quality content and questions down. I personally think spammers do not belong here.

Hubpages is HUGELY hypocritical for allowing endless promotion of products on Amazon and endless Adsense links AND YET WE CAN'T PROMOTE OUR OWN WEBPAGES. It's an outrage and it's an oppressive tactic to suppress new businesses and entrepreneurs. Post hear if you agree and want to...

In our hubfeeds, there's a 'share' button under the hub for sharing hubs with our followers. Are you okay with using this button to share your own hubs with your followers or are you too modest? Is it appropriate to do or is it seen as similar to sharing your hub links which is frowned upon?

I am currently testing out the new video feature with my latest hub. When I tried to share on Google+, the screen was partially blocked by my video and would not let me write a comment and share with my followers. I was wondering if anyone else who is testing out the new video feature was having a...
