    I've asked two questions today dealing with transgender people in the military and they were denied. I was respectful and honestly wanted to know what people thought What is the problem?

      There is a topic tree branch for it, so the word must be okay … ssues/1997

      Perhaps you were denied because they believe the question is more appropriate for a forum.  They have been cracking down on Q&A that are not being used to "inspire hubs" or something like that.

      Did you ask questions that would lead to the creation of a Hub?  If not, don't ask in the Q&A area.  That's not what that section is for.

      If your questions might have been used to create a Hub, it wouldn't surprise me if a moderator here responded to a wave of complaints against your questions from the military and religious-focused members of the site and denied them.  Transpersons are not allowed to serve openly in the U.S. military and face a lot of discrimination to their existence in general.

        There were many reports in the news about the military s plans to lift the ban on transgender members. I do think it was newsworthy and could have made a good hub.

      Your questions were not moderated due to the content of the question, but to it being a discussion of opinion.

      Questions are intended as a place to ask a factual question from which you can create a Hub.
      For discussions of opinion, please use the forums and not QA. … d_22576958

    Here's what it is...

    You picked a hot button, newsworthy topic. As such, it will generate lots of answers, traffic, and ad revenue.

    In the Q&A section, HP only gets 40% of the revenue. In the forums, HP gets 100% of the revenue.

    And that is why the rules are what they are.

    Me thinks I'm feeling cynical today...
