Should we have admin powers over the questions we post?
if you post a question that you want honest free answers to, but find that someone has jumped in and began to hound the people who post answers,... shouldn’t you have a right/obligation to delete and block them?....... I’m all for free speech,.... but harassment is another thing
it just seems that the question format has become the new forum,.. blood guts ego and all included.
We are able to close our questions, which I would do if that happened. What you suggest might be a good idea. Have you suggested it to the admin?
Questioners do have the ability to "delete" an answer. When you are signed-in to your account and viewing the question, it is one of the options appearing below any answer or comment. This is similar to moderating comments on hubs.

So, are you just answering/asking questions to get an accolade? I am.

What the heck is the point of Q&A? I don't mean that sarcastically. I am really trying to figure it out. I can't formulate a strategy for properly using this feature unless I can understand the intent behind it.First the Q&A questions/answers were on their own pages with their own urls. It...
