Why was my request removed?

    I wrote a request called "With the rise of social networking, is the internet now mainly for recreation or business?" because I thought this would result in a number of different views from various users.

    It's been 'removed by moderator' and I don't understand why. It's not promotional or adult orintated - it's just a question about the current trend of using the internet as a social and recreational tool instead of a business tool.

    Can anyone give me an idea why it might have been dumped?

    tagtopics -

    When you enter a request, this is the text at the top:

    HubPages Requests are where you can ask for detailed information or advice in the form of a Hub. Requests are not for simple expressions of opinion ("What is your favorite...") or very simple questions ("What is a..."). Put in a Request for questions you simply can't find good enough answers already on the Web.

    Thanks Jason,

    Just a bit of re-wording needed then. Perhaps I should have read the page a bit more clearly!

    No worries. If you'd like to make it the starting point for a discussion about opinions, you might consider starting it as a topic in the Technology Forum.

    Not sure how it would fit in 'technology' although it might be worth starting an opinions forum!

    ...No, then again it would just end up becoming a slagging match
