Hellbanning, AKA “Coventry”, “ghost posting” or “shadowbanning,” is when a troll’s comments are only visible to them.

This tactic has been used on sites like Something Awful, Reddit, Fark, and Hacker News.

I really like the new Q&A feature on individual hubs. What I'd like to know is if there's a way to delete a question if it's inappropriate?For example, I have one now. Let's say the hub is about apple pies, their origin and history, and the question is 'What is apple?' That's just a made up...

I was attacked on a forum thread by someone who never wrote an article on this site. I know this is an issue we discussed other times. But in a time of angry political division, perhaps we should revisit this policy? Why should writers who occasionally go on a forum have to defend themselves...
