    Is there a reason people post incredibly long speeches in the forums on a certain topic? Wouldn't these pieces of writing be put to better use in a hub? Correct me if I'm wrong!

      You're right.  What sometimes happens is that people join HubPages and somehow, miss all the information at the beginning.  Then they think the forums ARE HubPages and start posting their Hubs here.

      No, some of these posts are no good on the forums.  Why turn them into an even worse hub?

      I'm guilty of it. If I get going I can write a very large amount for a forum post, which would be much better served if it were actually for a hub.

      I always hate it when they write a forum post with no paragraph breaks...definately don't wanna read that! if it's a religious forum rant then definately ignore!

    I am guilty of this. Sometimes it just happens...I get to "talking" about what I think...and when I hit send it's like, "Oh."

    And I even think, "That would make a good hub." But often don't get around to making it so.

    It probably would be put to better use in a hub. lol

    I'm guilty of it too (REALLY guilty  lol)

    I've occasionally turned a long response into a Hub, but my head is in two different places when I do a Hub versus post on here.  On here, I see discussions about relatively serious topics as "conversations" - and kind of include what I might in a conversation.  To me, some subjects call for more "in depth" discussion (otherwise, don't even bother at all). A lot of the times I'll look for a thread that looks like the person is looking for a "real" discussion, not just a quickie post.  I just like "the exchange of ideas" or "debates" sometimes.  I guess it all depends on what anyone is looking to get out of the forums at any given time.  (I'll stop now before I write a thesis on my own forum-posting.  lol  )

      Don't worry I do that too - but I was originally thinking more of the forum posters who start a NEW THREAD that is four paragraphs long, seemingly answering a question... that nobody asked. Like "How to fix *** in your computer."

        Oh - I've often wondered about those too.  I just assume they may be new, or at least not on here often enough to know their thread would make a good Hub.  (The "nobody-asked" factor IS kind of funny.  lol  )   Most of the time they don't really look like the OP is looking for anyone else's input on any "discussion".  hmm

    I never read the long posts, they may have something interesting to say but it's usually something that could be said in their own words for much less. Not accusing anyone in this post but many will post an entire article from somewhere else to prove their point.
