Should we leave God and Obama out of HP Q&A for awhile?
I've been a member of HP for almost 2 years. The answers section used to have dozens of new questions daily. This weekend, I think there were about 4. The rest are questions from 2 and 3 years ago. HP has to put something there. I also notice that there are about 15 of the same people asking, answering and commenting on a regular basis, and most of the time, turns into personal attacks of some sort.
I will not participate in the religious or political theater for awhile. I believe this is what is alienating people from this section. What say you?
I would support such a measure. The constant preaching and the partisan political battles are getting old.
Why should people quit asking questions concerning current events?
Questions about God and Obama present current event situations where knowledge is transferred through truthful interaction with others.
Sticking our heads in the sand when these current events occur is what has presented us with enraging immoral communities today.
People alienate themselves by denying the truth.
Individuals that present truth seek to repair the society.
Those that wish to expand immoral evil through deceitful presentations seek to destroy the society even more.
Shall we allow the evil to persist?
This is exactly what I'm talking about. tbhist; You can ask and preach anything you want, but there are other interests in this world that are moral and not evil. If your attitude is one of , morality and kindness, you'll keep this rhetoric 2 urself.
They do get really old, the same questions worded differently every few days. Nobody will ever sway a person to change their beliefs, if they are sincere with them, so why does everyone think if they fight, belittle, insult etc., that it is actually going to accomplish anything??
Religion and politic discussion will only cause fights unless you share the same views and this will never change. I used to get sucked into the debates but have grown wiser to avoid them.
I agree. I let myself get sucked into these theaters and find myself, usually defending my beliefs. Why? Because I'm stupid. I don't need to defend my beliefs to anyone; especially some anonymous, dogmatic egotist that thinks they know "the truth".
The section is definitely over-saturated with those kinds of questions. Part of it is the fault of the posters and part of it is the fault of the viewers. I've seen legitimate questions sink like a rock because they just don't incite that same level of fire that encourages people to click. Maybe, rather than avoid these sections, we should comb through previous posts that haven't gotten attention. With enough traffic, the hot questions should finally start to shift to new topics.
These questions are always welcome and they are entitled to do so. But I don't want to spend so much time worrying about the afterlife that I miss THIS life. I'd like to participate in new, fresher subjects. I do this as hobby. Not income or mission.

Including our hubs, I think.

Has anyone else noticed a serious drop in quality among the Question portion of HubPages? For the past several weeks, nearly every question that is featured in the "my account" section has been ripe with misspellings and just contain a general lack of worth in my opinion. I feel the...

It is in HP's interests to reassess the policy about DMCAs. For years we've been told hubbers are responsible for filing DMCAs about individual copyright infringements. But I've looked at the DMCA documentation and really can't see why.So here's my 6 top reasons why I believe HubPages should take...

Do you prefer to participate in the Q&A section or the Forums?I participate more in the Q&As than in the Forums. How about you?

Recently I'm noticing new members who have no hubs, no activity where they read or comment on hubs, and only join to participate in self interest and/or bleeding heart questions in various forums. Sort of using HP as a chatroom. Before anyone attacks me for this, please know I enjoy the discussion...

I have noticed that an increasing number of people seem to have joined this site merely to spam religion on the forum. This would be okay if it was not for the fact that this is a forum for writers, not theists.I am all for having a community forum, but I believe it should be a community forum for...
