I just had to delete several comments from one of my Hubs. They weren't just rude or raw, they were racially motivated with an air of unnatural arrogance. The content was so sensitive, however, I feared that replying any more than I did would constitute a possible breach of HP rules; not due to my own replies, but because of the very nature of his comments.
Sometimes I'll leave a comment (that someone has posted) that is hateful or negative, just to prove a point and show how utterly ridiculous it is. But this guy kept going on with it, even stating: "...meaning no disrespect but..." Yeah, the big "but". No way...he was digging for a debate that could have gotten out of hand.
I checked his IP address. It was in the U.S. and he used the same name on all 3 comments.
Anyhow, it was disturbing, so I deleted them all, including my first attempts at polite response to de-escalate what I suspected he was headed for.
How about you guys?
I have had many hatefully based comments. Hatred directed at groups which I do not acknowledge. Do not take the actions of the individual, place that individual in a group for the purpose of spreading hate for the group. I will never post such comments.
I agree with all of you. It's not that we're deleting them because they disagree with our topic, it's because they're motivated by hate and naivete that nobody wants to read in the first place.
Haven't had this problem yet. Though, since I deal solely in entertainment topics, I doubt it's likely to crop up, anyway.
Yes, I deleted a guy who basically set up shop on my hub's comments section and answered the comments of others. I shook my head, not recalling writing any of those replies when I realized it weas him who was doing the responding.

Sure it might not be getting traffic, but why would you ever delete it? Is there a benefit?

Is it OK for users to just delete my response on an answer apparently for no reason? I simply addressed the question with my personal opinion (about dog food, and how it doesn't make sense for it to be optimum...

What's the point in having a comment box if the particular hubber denies every comment posted on the hub?I noticed a comment on a hub, so I read it. It wasn't a bad comment at all, just something that I would see why...

Some people say you should never, ever delete a hub...only edit it and such. What makes you just completely trash your own hubs?
