I think I can put my humble opinion on a table too. First: I am sure administration did not have a choise: WE ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO INSULT EACH OTHER. PERIOD. We all here with different backgrounds and experiences and opinions and we have to learn to respect that and to ARGUE not INSULT. We can share our opinions, but without putting down the other side.You can laugh at somebody, but you cannot degrade, even if somebody is not right, he/she will learn. That's what life experience is about. People change their beliefs and opinions. If I say something no one likes and everybody will be shouting at me with F* words and calling me names just because they feel like it , it's not going to be free speech,it's going to be free chaos, something no one wants to be in, I am sure.
Second: To snip somebody's opinions is like exercise the same unnecessary control and manipulation we all hate and I am sure HUBPAGES are above that.
Third and the last: There are lots of stupid, reckless,plain dumb, unconsiderate, lightheaded people around and if we cannot tolerate them and deal with them and live among them calmly and reasonably,too bad, that just shows our immaturity and instability and nothing else.
