Can't we have any fun? Questions are closed when we get a kick out of the answers!
I'm just adding a little humor to the millions of questions that are way to serious! They're not inappropriate.....but yet they disappear!
I recently had a question removed by the moderators because it incited discussion as opposed to inspiring a hub or answers. It was suggested that I post in the forums if I wanted to start a discussion. That question was "Have you ever drunk straight from the bottle?" I was just curious as to how people would perceive such a vague question and how they would answer. I guess if you want to have any fun you have to do it in the forums. Please limit your questions to: "Is it really possible to make any money on HubPages?" and "How much did you make in your first month on HubPages?".
I have had a few questions removed, I'm not sure why. I read that you are supposed to receive an email detailing why, but have not received anything yet. It has only been a few days maybe it takes a while.
Yes - one of the cool things about questions is bonding with fellow hubbers. I think they are too stringent in their parameters. We are certainly free to bypass any questions we don't want to answer.
I once asked what kind of car people would drive if they could have any car - the question was removed, labeled as "poling?" What on earth is the harm?
Ideally, questions are supposed to inspire people to write hubs. Silly questions don't usually do that.
Hi Uninvited Writer !
I respectfully disagree that silly questions do not inspire people to write. I believe
the less censored our questions are, the more diverse our questions are allowed to be, the more doors in our creative brains open.
I was taught a long time ago that there are no silly questions.
The few times I have strayed away from hubpages out of laziness or lack of inspiration, it is often a 'silly' question (I get notifications sent to my email address when new ?'s are post ed) that has me signing in to be entertained and reconnect with hubpages, if for no other reason than to see what answers are posted. Some of those silly questions have inspired some of my hubs!
I have found there are many intelligent answers posted on questions that may at first glance appear to be silly.
I do not visit the forums. There are enough social media sites out there than I can follow already. Perhaps hubpages will ammend their question policies to satisfy more of their writers. Or add a 'humor' catagory.
Hi Rutley, I think humor rocks and inspires many a good hub.
Make it a great day.
Well rutley, When I finally saw the question regarding the larger waistline or backside, I jumped at the chance to answer and was very disappointed to see that the question was no longer available. Some people may given silly answers, but I was hoping there would have been at least one answer that mentioned the health risks associated with a larger waistline compared to a larger backside. Fat around the stomach, which can interfere with vital organs is much more of a health risk than fat on the backside. Your question could have inspired some very good health comments!
My question, "How High is Up," was removed. I actually was able to use one of the answers in a Hub.
Explain that, censors!

The new Feed Facility (that I quite like) means I become aware of loads of really silly questions that new 'hubbers' are asking. Unfortunately I find myself replying with equally silly answers (I know its childish!). There is a facilty to flag questions and I guess that it what I should...

I have noticed that the forums have been flooded with God, and the proof if there is one or not. Why do you think people ask questions that they really don't believe in. Why do you think they just randomly pick the topic about creation, God. Then they leave some pretty negative comments. Why do you...

How many questions have you answered on HubPages and do you answer questions?
