Why are questions disappearing?


Recently this has been happening a lot. I get a notification that someone I am following has asked a new question so I click on it only to find that I get a message telling me the question has been removed. Why? Is there some new HubPages process whereby if a question isn't deemed appropriate or something it is removed?

 
This question is closed to new answers.

    I know Vickiw. It was notifications about your questions and their subsequent disappearance that prompted me to ask. Any question has the potential to turn into a discussion. People answer the question; others comment on the answers=discussion!

    I think that's a brilliant idea! Then we would know what their idea of a discussion is, and where they think it belongs. Uh oh, this is beginning to sound like discussion to me! The hammer will descend . . .

    All well and good Marlene but you appear to be instrumental in creating a discussion right now - on Q&A!

    I had one of mine removed, and I think it was because of that too.

    That's disappointing, ChitrangadaSharan. I hope you had time to read some appropriate answers to your question before it was removed. :)

    I would say that this question was a valid question that has now turned into a discussion. Not my fault; it's all you people answering it that did that! So it's probably going to disappear. It was good while it lasted.

    And the forums are so full of nonsense. I have tried to find info there and there are so many trying to be cute or funny, the subject matter is lost.

    Me too. I like the questions. I have found, for the most part, forums rather direspectful. So is this now a discussion? We shall see!

    I had a question removed for the same reason - because it encouraged discussion!!
