    Why this misuse of hubpages?

    This content writing site is being misused as a facebook or a site to conduct different irrelevent surveys like the elections of US President. The focus should be on improving the site instead of pouring anything. I propose the ban on such reckless members.

    I agree, used to be I was able to cash out 4-5 months. Now the place is full of trolls, racists and holier than thou folks.

      You are right there are a lot of absurdities in the site.

    Sometimes you ask a question to get a feel for the community's view or get answers on which you can write a hub.
    I've written a number of Hubs in response to other people's questions.

      I agree, but still the facebook like visitors make us feel that we are aliens.

    I think you are correct in your assessment. There are a lot of people on this site who are not writers, and there are a lot of writers on this site who are not writers. I wonder if a simple writing test would help the site to keep its focus. Recently, a new coworker made the statement that she would like to find a writing site to help critique her writing outside our office. I did not recommend HubPages because nobody seems to give honest critiques, and most people bristle if one does. I'm not sure of the purpose of this site except to make money for itself. I'm certainly not making any money, so it's a good thing I write for fun.

      You are right MizBejabbers, but there are some very intelligent writers on hubpages. The annual prize winners on the site in different categories are really the best and the inspiring writers. But they do not appear on the hub feeds regularly.
