How does one close a thread which has been hijacked?

    I started a couple of threads in the forums, hoping to having enlightened conversation with like-minded people. But the threads have been hijacked.

    Is there a way of closing these threads? Because I realize that one really cannot have enlightened conversation in the forums. There are too many 'time-wasters' around.

      You're A FUNNY GUY... roll
      Very Troll-Like...

      Why Not Just Open Yet Another Thread and Arrogantly Rubbish the members who have generally all been on this site before You! hmm

      Perhaps you would find that seeking an 'Enlightened Conversation' is alot easier if you stand up and air your head; instead of remaining seated and airing your incontinent views! yikes hmm

      If people have hyjacked your thread... it generally shows that little respect exists for the OP or the Subject.. Have you considered that point? hmm

      Calling your peers 'time-wasters' pretty much sums it up... sad
      If you hold such contempt for others here... Why Are YOU Here? hmm

      I think you are doing the right thing. This is the best place to complain about people not agreeing with your point of view. But I do have a suggestion - perhaps if you made it a little more whiney and pleading instead of the passive/aggressive Christian thing? No one likes that.   wink

      Good bye.

      Pratonix, if you want to have conversations with like-minded people, you'd be best to go in search of other forums (not on HubPages) designed especially for that purpose.  There are several where you have to apply for membership so the moderators can control who joins. Yahoo Groups springs to mind.

      HubPages is an open forum. By creating a post you open up a debate, which means that people with views for AND against are encouraged to comment.  If you don't want to hear from people who disagree with you, HubPages is not a suitable place for your discussions.

    I do not think you can delete a thread once someone else has commented on it.  You could ask the staff to close the thread?
