While I'm answering a question in the Q&A section, I see on the right sidebar under "related questions" an interesting question. So I clicked on it about to answer it, when I saw that the question was asked 3 years ago. And the two answers that had already been given was 3 years ago too. So I refrained from answering it. Because I figure the asker probably got his answer already. And I don't want to bring up an old question.
So my suggestion to HubPages is to display only *recent* questions in the "related question" section -- not questions that are 3 year old.
Believe it or not, the real purpose for the "Questions" and "Answers" section was so people could post questions and other people could write hubs answering the questions. If the answer was short enough to post in the smaller section, but not large enough to write a hub, then the answer should be posted.
Otherwise, it's intention was to create hubs to answer questions.
I hope that helps clear up things.
