Why does it seem that some treat the answers area like a wishing well?
It seems funny to me at times when one asks a specific question here such as, "I've written you twice and you still have not responded. Why?" The who is left out. The details are as well. It's like someone throwing a coin into a wishing well with the expectation that a magical process will ensue thereafter, which will bring the wish to fruition. Here, it's like someone feels there is a secret and mysterious wizard somewhere who has all the answers in the world to every question that may be asked. Why do you think this is so? What is it in the human psyche that would make people think this?
The link to create a question is on the Profile page for individual users. When a surfer clicks on the "Ask a question" link it appears to them that they are asking the question of a specific Hubber. They don't learn that the question will be posted to the HubPages universe until it's too late to withdraw it.
Those boxes on hubs say "Ask xxxx a question"
I thought those went specifically to the hubber and would show up in the Questions For You spot. If they end up here, it is no wonder we get so much confused nonsense.
Or do you think they are clicking on the top menus and then on the Ask a Question without realizing they are no longer at a specific Hubber?
Or is it just that people come here from a search and do not understand that it is a community rather than one author?
Perhaps there should be more explanatory text?

Why does God do bad things to good people if He really is just?I want honest answers only. No name calling or "my religion is better" stuff.

Why does God choose some and reject others?
