I wrote a request called "With the rise of social networking, is the internet now mainly for recreation or business?" because I thought this would result in a number of different views from various users.

Can anyone give me an idea why it might have been dumped?

No worries. If you'd like to make it the starting point for a discussion about opinions, you might consider starting it as a topic in the Technology Forum.
Not sure how it would fit in 'technology' although it might be worth starting an opinions forum!

Why are some of my questions being deleted?I few of my questions have been deleted, and I want to figure out what I've been doing wrong so that no more of them get deleted.

Did HubPages provide an explanation regarding why you can no longer easily share a Hub on Twitter using a button on the Hub? Why did they replace it with Flipboard?
