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.

I'd like to suggest that hubbers have some way, short of deleting an entire comment, of deleting unwanted links in the comments of others.It is not unusual at all (fairly common, in fact) to see otherwise worthwhile and...
