Should Hubpages make it a rule that to participate in the Q+A/Forums one has to have at least 1 hub?
I've been reading a few of the questions here, and many many comments by a handful of people - several of whom seem to think that Hubpages Q+A is their personal conversion ground. Then I went to look at several people who do this profiles - and noticed they mostly have NO HUBS, therefore are only participating in the community to 'convert' or troll the questions with their repeated comments (of which the OP of the Question does NOT want to hear). I feel that if you are going to participate, then you should at least be contributing to the business of Hubpages, not just using them,
And so often they hide behind anonymity....presumably afraid to show their true identity. Surely a mark of timidity, if not cowardice.
i agree, these people who ask questions do not post any hubs and yet get followers
It has boggled my mind why people would do this.
Yes, I do believe that there should be some restrictions on them and that they should begin writing hubs before being allowed to post questions here. (Unless it is a genuine request for help)
Yes, I agree. A lot of questions are spammy and poorly written, and sometimes trolls do seem to enjoy posting.
There definitely needs to be some kind of restriction for using the Q&A. Something simple for an HP user, but difficult for a spam bot. The 1 hub idea is good, thought it might have to be refined to one featured hub. Since a spam bot could churn out nonsense to meet the requirement (but it would have to be coherent to be featured).
I think they should have to write at least one hub just to be able to comment or participate in any area of HP.
It's called HubPages! Not TrollPages. I really get tired of people spouting off when their sole intention is to ridicule and put down the members here.

There are some troubled men who regularly use forums, and they have not a single hub in their profiles. How come? How is it allowed? I do not get it--- Is HubPages a chat-website?

For the second time in less than a week, I just spent time opening "questions" that aren't questions, but nonsensical "garbage"--bits of a paragraph copies from somewhere and dumped into HP. In each case, I flagged them for HP, and they will likely disappear soon. But they harm...

As an out gay man, I'd like to address a topic that I've noticed in recent months that's extremely disturbing. Specifically, I'm talking about forum posts that are nothing more than homophobic sentiments, disguised in the form of a question. I'm not going to link to these posts because I...

Has anyone else noticed a serious drop in quality among the Question portion of HubPages? For the past several weeks, nearly every question that is featured in the "my account" section has been ripe with misspellings and just contain a general lack of worth in my opinion. I feel the...

I jumped into WebAnswers a few weeks ago. I find I get plenty of WebAnswers help there from the community, although there are no forums. Community help is structured through questions and answers, so, no religion and politics and no just-for-fun discussions. It's all about business. I feel I'm...

PROBLEM: Whenever I write a hub on a controversial subject, a number of people create new, fake hub accounts solely for the purpose of posting negative comments and feedback on my hubs and/or threatening me anonymously. These new hubbers have 0 (zero) hubs and no other activity, and they are never...
