    The quality of questions here is getting very low.  How about letting us rate them so that the really dumb stuff disappears just like the answers?

    And perhaps restricting those who persist in posting low quality junk?  Harder, perhaps..

      Good ideas.

    That's why the flagging options for questions exists.  If a question gets a lot of flags, admin takes a look at it, same as with Hubs.

    There are systems in place here that work, but only if site users participate.  Notice how many people complain about Hubs, but then turn right around and say they would never, ever flag one.

      Well, I do flag hubs and if this is my only option, I'll start flagging questions also.

      But ss I said elsewhere, voting seems to at least partially work for answers, why would it not help screen questions?

      Yeah. It's like people expect them to be magically dealt with.

    All you can do is flag them, HubPages isn't too worried about the low quality questions, at least I don't think they are. If they were, they'd change the section back to the way it was before. Stinks, but oh well...

    It's just easier to flag them for screening. Voting doesn't necessarily help screen, at least I wouldn't think.

    I'm just tired of the low quality questions, opinion questions (which do you like better), and those related to HubPages. I wish they'd change the rules back to the way it was before where opinion questions, yes/no questions, and questions related to HP weren't allowed.

      I'll second this!
