Well, you might see it as "your content" and if it is yours, you should have the right to delete it.
Of course that makes holes and may make other folks replies meaningless or gibberish, so it does affect others.
But that' like saying I can't delete a hub because someone else has linked to it, isn't it?
As I never bothered to read the TOS for the forum, and I'm sure most others never did either, I have no idea who owns these words, but I bet it is HP.

I'd like most of mine deleted because a good number of them result from a caffeine (and associated word volume/speed) overload. Then, when all the caffeine wears off I hate that my name is associated with those long posts. (I do have some respectable and non-embarrassing two-liners, even one-liners; and I'd like all of them to stay - just so people know I'm capable of two- or one- liners once in awhile). (..but, oh - a person can do some much typing and writing when he's loaded up on caffeine. )
Actually, it is kind of time to make another half-pot full - or else to make the half-pot full and then go to sleep (I can't sleep without my coffee). (Notice that this post here is just a three-liner?? )
I must admit, I've often found some of my forum posts a little embarrassing when I look back. I think it would be nice to delete or change some of them. But if we all did that, the threads would be in shreds, and none of them would make any sense anymore, although some never did, anyway.
Well, then.. I, for one, retract what I said above about wishing some posts (not particularly anything I've ever said in them, but the posts, themselves ) could be deleted. Oh wait.. it would be spineless of me to retract what I said, or change how I was thinking. Never mind. Everything I've ever said, including the above post, can stay. (but I do have to say, believe me, removing anything I think ought to be wouldn't be a selfish act. I would be showing great mercy to anyone who runs into some of those posts. I was only looking out for the greater good. (but also me)
I know there's been alot of changes here lately, but I can usually justify them in terms of being good for HubPages. This one I'm not so sure about. There was a thread in which the OP made outrageous and unsupported and...
On several occasions I have responded to a thread (usually those that have not been answered) and go back and check to see if there has been any follow up other than the reply I posted and the threads have...
Under the political issues forum, my discussion regarding congressman (John Lewis) was inadvertently deleted, is this a harbinger of Trump attempts to censor unfavorable comments? Can anyone check into this and let me...
