Have you ever had your Question/Hub/Forum Topic deleted without knowing why?
I was going through my Q&A and found one of my questions had been taken down by the admins, and I have no idea why. It was last month, and I hadn't even noticed (though did wonder why no one had answered it).
They usually send an email with the reason. Check the email account that is associated with your HubPages account. The reason is almost always because they think your question encourages a forum-like discussion. Supposedly they prefer questions with more cut-and-dried answers. I've found that if you rephrase it and submit it a few days later it will stay up.
I've had Question & Answer pages removed by the Admin because they were supposedly "better fit for a forum," even though I've totally been banned from the forums, and I've had Hubs unpublished because they were overly promotional even though they only had one affiliate link, and I've had Adverts disabled due to "sensitive content filters," that I later transferred to some of my other blogs, websites, etc. So yeah, this place is a little more strict than it should be and it is definitely different than doing whatever you want on your own websites; ha!
I don't really care, though, as I only publish here on occasions.
Plus, the revenue from the Q & A section is minuscule, if anything, from what I can tell. There is a lot more money to be made via your Hubs.

Sure it might not be getting traffic, but why would you ever delete it? Is there a benefit?

Why do some people ask a question then delete the answers they don't like?A number of times I've gone back to look at an answer I gave and the questioner has deleted it. Do they wish to embrace censorship or silence the...
