Is there any benefit to using the answers section to get a feel for what people want to read about?
For example, would it wise to assume that if people are engaged in a conversation about your question, that you could expect traffic for a hub?
I don't really think so. It might be an indication of what's popular on HP, but that doesn't seem to match up with what's popular in general.
I agree with Sherry, but at the same time I find that sometimes I get an idea for a hub by reading what people have to say.
I don't rely on the answers section to make a list of topics I think people will want to read, but sometimes it jogs something in my brain and leads to an idea for something similar. For example, I've seen a few medical type questions and it gave me the idea to write my hub about cerebral aneurisms even though aneurisms weren't any part of any of the questions.

Yesterday, I posted a question in the Answers section. After doing so, I received an immediate response that my question needed moderation. After a few hours, I went back to see if it had been approved. However, it was crossed out, and I received an emails as such:> Dear Abby Campbell,>>...
