      The members have not permission to erase a thread that we started.only hubpages team members can do that

        Not true. Staff members do not delete threads that have posts other than the Original Post. If there is only the Original Post, the OP can delete the thread simply by deleting the post.

          Which is exactly why hubbers should NOT reply to an Original Post that is considered spam.  You simply hit the report button and report it as Spam.  That way, when HP looks at it they can delete it and the thread is gone.  When one person responds to the thread then the thread remains.  You'll often see the original post deleted on those and a few hubbers' replies still sitting there.

    Not once someone has posted to the thread.

    However, you can email Staff and ask them to close it to replies. Thus, ending whatever opportunity the rest of the community would have to post to the thread.

    In essence, the thread will die out.

        The easiest and most effective way to contact staff is Team@HubPages.com

        If you have a found a reason to say "I'm sorry", then there isn't anything else left to say. At least you know what you did. Now accept it and move on.

        Acceptance of what you do and what others do is the hardest part of living life. hmm

          Is it your practice never to accept an apology?

            either way I forgive...
            I go thru so much w/ other 'people' this is tiny in comparison but enough of me smile

            Hey Website Examiner, is it any of your business? An apology is only words. I have accepted the action that was taken and that is all that matters. The better question you should be asking is do I hold a grudge? Which I do not. Therefore, it makes the apology useless, except for the person to feel better about themselves.

            The fact that it was said, means that the person realized that they did something wrong and have guilt they need to erase. That would mean that they apparently are having trouble accepting what they did themselves for whatever reasons and must deal with it.

            Saying words, like "I'm sorry" is only for self and for those who have ego problems and hold grudges. I hold nothing against her, nor do I dislike her, nor do I detest her. I have no ill-will against her. I just want her to accept what did, learn why she did it and move on.

            I find your question lacking. hmm

    Cagsil, I was merely interested in learning more about your philosophy and manner of thinking. The reason is that you once told me something similar in comments on a hub of yours, which is why I was interested in getting to know you a bit better. No criticism was expressed or implied on my part.

    I see you did in fact answer my question, which is unlikely to be followed by others anytime soon. I thought you appreciate intellectual discussion on the forum, that is all.

      But, this isn't the forum to be holding that discussion. Now is it?

      This forum thread is about something completely different. hmm
