Why are Hubbers asking a zillion questions about comforters and bed sets?

    Why are Hubbers asking a zillion questions about comforters and bed sets?

    What makes this such a hot question topic? I see loads of questions on this topic, few of them address real concerns of someone who might actually be seeking information on how to decorate or purchase a choice for a bedroom. Wouldn't we rather know about differences in filling materials, etc?

    This is the same person opening multiple user accounts and asking questions with the same keywords?  It is a form of SPAM, and it is ruining this Q&A forum.  I wish Hubpages would change their rules a bit, so that someone with an account that is 5 minutes old with no profile information can't post on forums.  I feel that a user should be 'established' on the site before they can post.  You can report SPAM by clicking on the question, then clicking the 'report' tab just under the 'follow' tab.

      I like your idea. On wp blogs there are choices to limit comments that way, and I think some forums have that restriction. Spammers just ruin everything, don't they? Such a hassle to deal with them.

    Because they're not real hubbers, they're automated spam-bots, which are a constant irritant in this section.

      I should have realized they were spam-bots. There must be too many to moderate. Does everyone learn to stay away from the "unanswered" questions for this reason?

      I would say I still suffer some confusion myself, but those guys are ridiculous!

    Hey! I'm doing a head shake -- say what? This is the craziest thing I've heard this week. Yes, I would think I want to know about the filling materials and if it is flammable.

      I came to the q&a section ... went to the unanswered questions since the other topics were those I'd already visited and they had multiple answers already. Then I saw the questions were almost all about the same thing.

      Well, I am still a bit confused by it all. Like I never in a million years even thought about comforters and bed sets that much. Not until Squidoo and then HubPages. You know? It's a wild world we live in.

    I don't know how to choose the best answer- they were all good and shed light on the situation.
