I think it's just because they want people to respond. Or just for attention. Some questions are worth while though.
Perhaps you'd be wise to check your spelling before you go calling other people stupid.
Don't say everyone stupid, someone really don't know the answers for the question asked.
That question could show up on Failblog.org because of the misspelled word...lol
there is no such thing as a stupid question just stupid answers
Many people ask questions just for the sake of it. A few others ask because they have genuine queries. No question is stupid if asked with the right intention.
Because they just want to be noticed and make their statistics rich. It may also that questions seems stupid because your IQ is more than theirs,which makes you think like that they are asking stupid questions.
Well mst likely it is because they dont know the answer, or they are just bored.
To the commenters who claim there is a misspelled word in this question: You are incorrect. There is no misspelled word. There's an apostrophe where it's not supposed to be. It's probably a typo anyway, and it doesn't detract from anyone's understanding of the question.
As far as answering the question itself, though: --
I agree with mandyf. There are no stupid questions. There are just stupid (and rude) answers.
Everybody learns differently. What seems stupid to you may not be so stupid, because that person really wants to know and perhaps can't quite understand.
I have a learning disability. I'm not stupid, but sometimes I can't tell right from left, etc. Things like that. I get lost, even though I've lived here for twenty six years. I don't know where I am, and get scared and start crying. Fortunately, I live in a city where the people are very patient, kind and fair.
Yesterday I got lost walking from church to my car. It was parked a couple blocks away.
I heard a quote somewhere --- TV or something --- not sure where I heard it --- "An ignoramus is somebody who doesn't know something that you just learned this morning."
They are not stupid if you do not know.
As a new hubber myself, I read, follow suggestions, read, follow links, read...........
if you do not come across your specfic question, it is not stupid.
Because no questions are stupid. Don't be so quick to judge where others may be coming from. Everybody has different interests and are at different points in life.
He is not stupid ..The fact is you don't know the answer ......

After reading through the forum and answers I see that some of the questions there seem to be asked just for the sake of asking them, but not to get the answer it self. Are these question asked for the purpose of marketing the hubs/author? Is it better for my hubs to ask...

Do we really need to ask stupid questions on hubpages ?I have seen many stupid questions in the question / answers section of hubpages.com, I just want to know why people are not taking this feature seriously to ask meaningful and informative questions ?

Why do people keep answering these stupid questions?I mean, really, when someone has 10 questions in a row and half of them are stupid things that can easily be found on Wikipedia or a simple web search, why bother giving them a decent, sensible answer? It's not what they deserve.
