People! It is NOT ENGLISH if it cannot be Read! WHY?
These Hubs that are thrown in my face every time I log into my main page, are becoming very, very irritating. People! Having a spelling checker and a grammer checker on your word processor, does not mean that you are communicating in ENGLISH! I know that this is going to surprise you, but normal English speaking people cannot read these incoherent hubs. How do we get them to stop?
If you see such an incoherent hub, flag it for poor quality.
Laziness is one possible guess re: why they do it. Or maybe they just want to get a concept out there but cannot articulate it properly enough with correct grammar. Remember not everyone has had an education. However I agree with Jeff.
Like Jeff said, flag it as low quality. Or be proactive about it - send a message to the author letting them know the mistakes they've made.
I am really having trouble getting my SPECIFIC point across here. The hubs that are being presented to me are obviously written by people whose native language IS NOT English. I have no problem with typing errors, grammatical errors, misplaced commas, etc. I can read and follow pretty much anyone's writing, but the ones I am seeing (at a rate of about 3-4 per 20 each time I log on) are distracting and give the impression that someone put the words into a bag, shook them up, and then poured them onto the screen. They are obviously people, in other countries, who have seen HP as an opportunity to make some easy money if they can get several thousand people to "follow them". I get "I like you" mails regularly from people ( with only a couple of hubs submitted) who are looking to build up a large following. What they haven't figured out is that you have to write hubs, write them regularly, and write on interesting subjects to make a buck at this, if that is what you are writing for. I write for critical review of my work, so I can grow. And I read others Hubs to learn. As to the lady who stuck her nose into the air over my question, well, Lady, I wonder what you are writing and reading Hubs for? Do you need a cause this bad?
Many of the people on Hubpages are not native to the English language. Yes, many of their posts and hubs are hard to read but I try to remember that they speak and write English much better than I speak or write their language which is nil.
If it is low quality you can flag it and it will be reviewed.
In reply to jami l pereira: I'm afraid poorly written hubs are our business and they must be flagged for moderation. This is because they impact on our Google rating which is important to many of us.
Google sees all the people who cheat on here ... and make no mistake, it is cheating to put spun, unintelligible and plagiarised work on HP as your own ... and creates an algorithm such as Panda to block us all ... good writers included. This means that browsers do not pick up the well written stuff from HP because it is lower down the ratings.
Unfortunately many people see writing for the internet as a temptingly easy way to make money. When they find out it isn't, it is often too late and they leave behind a pile of badly written dross that impacts on all of us.

Honestly, HP needs to step up and start filtering their input. I have been here for over 5 years and I have watched a lot of changes, but what I see as what must be the most damaging to HP (ergo we writers) with Google is the number of low quality Hubs being allowed in the gate. I hear a lot of...

Why are people able to speak a language, but cannot write or read it?

Not sure which category I should put this inI have recently discovered two interesting ways of writing hubs1. All gemstone jewelry hubs are written the same way, talking about only ebay buying, tons of wasteful and useless words such as "take a look at ...on the right", "you can see...

There are two newly discovered hubbers who have only posted raw translations by using online translating tool, what they did was merely copy and paste the results without doing any further modifications. From the comments they replied, you can tell they don't really understand much English. Even...

I know we should report spun articles and the like, but the guidelines also warn to be careful not to report people who don't have English as their first language.However, I've come across hubs that are written by such people, and the English is pretty bad.I don't mean to be insensitive or...

When I look at the questions section of hubpages I see pages and pages of silly questions. A lot of the time, when I click on "unanswered" or "latest" I see that the same person has asked ten or so questions in a row. I suspect that in most cases this is because of the fact that...
