    While disagreement with a hub topic is fine and even par for the course, there are those who become highly contentious in their disagreement.  Instead of politely reading the hub topic and moving on out of courtesy, they elect to assert their acrimonious commentary which is uncalled for.  The hub author has every right to write on the topics h/she wants to write on.  If the reader disagrees, just read......AND MOVE ON but no there are some people who not only are acrimonious in their comments but go into attack mode.  When the hub author rightfully deletes the comment, the said commenter does not take this as a hint but even elects to assert his/her right to comment no matter how many times his/her comments ARE DELETED!  Your thoughts on this behavior?

      Report them and just keep deleting, ad infinitum.

        I agree, just keep deleting and report them.  Any response at all will simply give them a reason to keep going.

              There are hubbers who receive incessant comments on their hubs and they are upset about this.  This post was addressing these beleaguered hubbers, not I.   I don't get upset by comments, if the comments are too illogical or negative, I just........DELETE after I have a good laugh of course.  But there are hubbers who are incensed by such comments.  They have the right to respectful and courteous treatment by readers.

        You are right I have to self examin how others feel when I make my comments, people never do anything to fail , but the point and purpose should not be over exaggerated,  then you lose the puropse , you gain critism.

      Personally, I would take it as a little extra literary challenge to make fun of the person before deleting their comment. Those are the ones with an attitude, and they should get some of their own medicine back. Remember, folks don't mind being told about their vices, but don't like to be reminded of their weaknesses. So, they may take deleting as a challenge, but will cave in after looking funny, while knowing that others are reading it about them as well. I don't mean telling the person that they are an "idiot" or something, but showing that their comment is ridiculous and they don't know what they are talking about, and maybe they should stop embarrassing themselves. Well, that's me, I don't play a victim so easily.

      Do you think the hub author has the right to spam the answers board and then delete any answers that do not agree with her idea that large families are bad and only wealth leads to happiness?

        An OP has the right to ask any question on the topics of his/her choice and delete answers that h/she doesn't agree with.  It is HIS/HER choice!!!!!

          The same applies to comments.  So...  I mean incessant is as incessant does; some people just have that approach to life.

        If someone is spamming the answers board then perhaps the most effective response is to report him/her?

          That is a good idea. When someone has hundred of questions on that board about the same subject, they should be reported since they are just trying to force their agenda upon others.
          On the forums your commment cannot be deleted.

            If a person doesn't like a question topic, ignore it.  There are thousands of questions on topics that  I dislike or disinterest me.  I ignore them as I couldn't care less.  To each his/her own, ASK AWAY!

              Sorry, I thought when someone asked "What makes only children in general to be nicer, kinder, truer, & more amiable children than children from large families?" they were looking for an honest answer, and not just hoping to hear something that justifies their feelings.

      If the person is disrespectfully disagreeing, screening and deleting their comments is probably the best course, but as others have mentioned, if this person is resorting to personal attacks, threats, or harassment directed at you personally (rather than your views) please do report them to the moderators. Such behavior is not tolerated.

    I had one instance where the commenter wouldn't take the hint of my repeated deletions of their comments. Eventually, I emailed the person and courteously advised them that I would not allow any more of their comments on my hubs, and suggesting that they write their own hub on the subject they were so passionate about. They did stop after that.
