David99999, far be it for me to propagate myths, lies, and phony questions! ha ha ha. My questiion was have YOU noticed an increase of "fake questions" or should I say questions where the writer isn't interested in getting a real answer?
mybabytia1 I see your point regarding promoting one's writing.
However I think that could be accomplished just as easily by asking sincere questions, questions that stimulate debate or an interesting conversation. More often than not if I come across a question that prompts me to respond I'll usually also visit the hubber's profile page and read a hub of theirs. Also leaving a great answer to a question or an interesting comment on someone's hub will often cause the writer to view your hubs. I really do believe it's possible for one to promote themselves with legitimate questions, answers, and comments.
I was just wondering if other people were observing the same types of questions being asked (repeatedly) or those where the asker clearly has NO real interest in the answers. The questions where one PRETENDS to have a problem looking for sound advice are the worst.
Looks like I'm in the minority on this one. ha ha ha
