A Question I'm following is being bombarded with horrible comments from a Flamer. This person started out half-civil then swiftly turned into a hysterical drama queen, replete with name-calling and accusations that smack of defamation of character toward others. My concern is not personal as she has not attacked me, but I am shocked by the vitriol. Hubpages admin has not responded to my concerns over the matter either. My question: why is this purposefully hateful behavior tolerated here? As a writer and contributing member, I find this kind of conduct highly unprofessional.

Management does not care unless someone is being harassed in your comments then they take it upon themselves to just up and unpublish the hub. Been there done that!!
Paula, thank you hon, I appreciate it. And I know it is bad when I have readers outside of HP's tell me they're uncomfortable coming here because of ranting commentators. One would think admin would at least be concerned how it drives away traffic!
lol Alastar! I know you'd never promote such antics. And thanks much :)
sadstill22, could be!
SassySue1963, I would not be at all surprised you are absolutely correct. But I am sorry it has driven you to stop writing!
Oh I still write. Just not here. :) I guess my real issue is the censorship. I deplore censorship in any form. I don't think hubbers should censor their own comments. Only comments with personal attacks should be removed.
I hear you, SassySute1963. While I don't like censorship of opinion, I can't abide defamation of character and name calling. These things aren't opinion, just bullying. I'm glad to hear you're still writing :)
