The Answers page is gettin on my nerves.

    Why is it that the only questions that seem to not get removed are religious ones.  I don't mind religion I'm just tired of reading all of the questions while all of mine get rejected.

    What the hell?

    Is there anyone besides me that wouldn't miss the Answers page if they just simply removed it.  Why not?  I mean we do have a Forum page.  Why not just go there instead and cut out the Answer page?

    I know others feel the same way.  I want to hear from everyone.  What do you think about it?

      Oh here we go again and attack the "religious".

      O.K., I get tired of seeing questions about people's sex life, their "unprotected sex" and whether or not they could get pregnant, or if they can get their boy friend/ girl friend back, etc. I see those kind of questions over there all the time, but they have a right to be there if the language is not dirty.

      If the administrators of HubPages rejected your questions there must have been something wrong with them. Why don't you ask them directly why they rejected your questions instead of trying to stir up sentiment against the "religious" here in the forums? There's already plenty so I guess you thought you could add a little more huh?   

      It seems liberals can never walk their talk of "live and let live". They want people to be "tolerant" of them, but they have none for people who don't think like them. They want to silence them or get rid of their views. Amazing. 

      Bottom line dude: If you don't like it, then stay out of the question section. Good grief!

        I was just asking a question.  You don't have to be rude.  If you are going to be that way then please don't respond to anything I write.

          He's a troll. No hubs. Ignore him.

            Yeah right. I'm a troll, but I have another account that is doing pretty well. Your insult doesn't bother me. Perhaps if you spent more time on your hubs instead of insults you wouldn't need to whine so much about losing traffic and earnings. Haha! Sorry for your loss. Psyche! LOL.

            The original poster said he wanted everyone's opinion. If he can't accept my comments he shouldn't ask what other people think.

      I've only ever asked one question, and that was a week or two ago. I got great replies that I learned so much from. But I agree with you that most of the questions they allow are sad and already well-answered in the forums.

    Since I don't know how to ask questions or post my own things to the forums it really doesn't matter to me.
    I do like being part of the community so have done so in the limited way I have figured out how to make work.
    Don't know how much my "two cents" is worth but you now have it.

    I've answered a few questions, but quite honestly consider them to be a waste of time and don't look any more. Most of the questions asked are somewhere on the scale between stupid and moronic.

    I had one question asked of me specifically after I put up a hub. The question asked if there were any good teaching videos with respect to the hub topic. I had featured a number of such videos in the hub!!!

    Surprise, surprise, I did not bother to answer.

    The Answers section was originally supposed to be a place where Hubbers could post questions whose answers would be in the form of Hubs. (So I've heard.) In other words, a place for Hubbers to find ideas about topics to write on.  Obviously, it has degenerated in its existence.  Sad.

      Couldn't we ues the forums to get ideas for hubs?  Basically the Answer section is useless and taking up space, kind of like the cast of "Jersey Shore"  big_smile  big_smile  big_smile

    I find most of the questions there a bit silly. The only reason I'd go there nowadays would be if I had nothing better to do, and I seem to always have something better to do.

    The Answers section can be vastly improved.

      Do you have any suggestions on how to do that without removing it?

        Well there is nothing I could do, but I could come up with plenty of ideas to make it better. Too bad I can't execute those plans.

    I actually think the answers section is quite useful! If I want a quick answer to something and I can't find it in the search. I do remember a short while ago it was much worse with things in there that weren't even questions so I think it has improved.

    I thought it was the forums that had all the religious discussions. personally I don't see hubpages as a religious discussion forum - surely there are specialised ones for that so I just ignore them but I do find it a bit annoying that around 50% of the forum posts in the most recent section seem to be religious which means that I can miss out on important hubpages discussions because they are not so obvious.
