Are there rules for deleting or leaving comments?
After finding this internet community I started to comment on hubs of my sphere of interest. Often I post comments on hubs that reflect the opposite idea of my personal thoughts. I like to discuss and argue, but I try to do it with respect and without getting personal.
Lately I postet a comment on a hub and had some back and forth comment conversation. Then I found out, the whole thread of comments (mine and hubbers) was deleted.
So - are there any rules, or was the hubber personally offended?
Hi Chris, each Hubber has the ability and the choice to delete comments from Hubs that they own.
I personally do not delete comments unless they are abusive or are against HubPages TOS. (Hubpages themselves may do this if the Hub is flagged)
I don't know if the Hubber was personally offended as I did not read the relevant comments but usually if you put up a controversial Hub you must be prepared for the resultant opposite comments to come in!
I think the comments section is really more for comments than conversation. If you like controversy or discussion, try some of the forums--wow they really get going over there.

That or it reverts to the top of the page and still doesn't save the comment.The issue has happened several...

Is it ever justified to delete reader comments?Do you ever delete comments on your Hubpages? Sometimes we get inappropriate or over promoting comments on our hubs, how do you handle the situation?

<link snipped>While enjoying my tribute to ImKarn23, I've been dealing with a somewhat awkward sitituation. Someone who calls herself Diva43, left a hateful and horrible comment on my Hub about Imkarn23. This is a purely personal issue but after the many comments left afterwards, I decided to...

Sometimes I come across hubs that are well written but have a glaring grammatical mistake or other error. I usually leave a note along the lines of "---- needs to be fixed up, Feel free to delete this."Just wondering if too many "deleted comments" could ever have a detrimental...
