How can we have a discussion, if we only have so many characters?
I tried to have multiple discussions, yet the amount of characters left makes it difficult to be concise.
For longer topical things, it should be in the forum and not a question. That's my opinion....
The character limits are in place in the answers section to prevent (or atleast attempt to prevent) long discussions. The forums are for debate and discussion. The Q and A section is for basic questions. This is HP's way of keeping a lot of the drama hidden away where google does not pick it up. The down side to this is that many of us who enjoy discussion here in the Q and A do not go to the forums. Often you can post something in the forums and if the handful of people in that section don't feel it is worthy of their trolling or hateful debate it gets few replies. Yet you can post the same thing here and it will get 20 answers and lots of comments. Over all I would rather be limited by the characters and get answers and debate with people who aren't trolls. I find the majority of people in this section are more mature (there are a few exceptions).

I read both forum entries and answers/questions entries but the two features seem to overlap. Many of the questions asked in "answers" are technical questions asked by hubbers about HP. Some elicit long threads of answers just like in the forums. Since the "questions/answers"...

Why are there so many questions here concerning Christian(or belief in God) vs Atheism?Is this the best platform for discussing these issues and are people really interested in the answers, or is religion vs non-religion just a controversial topic that will attract lots of debate and generate money...

Why do so many people ask questions that can be easily Google searched?While perusing the Questions I've noticed that half of them can be copied and pasted into Google, and very easily answered. What's the meaning of this?

When asking questions on HubPages, do you post "thanks" or replies to people"s answers?With the changes to the Q&A section of HubPages, I was wondering what the question etiquette is.

What do you think of people who ask a question then use the answers to write a hub?What do you think of people who ask a question (in forums or answer section etc) then use your answers and turn them into a hub? Would it bother you?
