How do you delete an answer to a question that has nothing to do with that question?
I got an answer to my question "Is HubPages trying to discourage its writers and get them to quit writing?" the answer seems to be advertising and has nothing to do with what I was asking.
Now I need to delete his answer for that reason. How do I go about doing that.
Hi Shyron, you should be able to see the word delete in blue letters under his or her answer and simple click it.
Dear Faith, I did click on the Delete Answer and it said "Are you sure you want to delete your question" so I hit the 'Cancel'.
Oh, really? Hmm. I checked under my questions and under each answer it says delete answer (not question) ...
Please note, to the right of the thumbs up/thumbs down is a selection of options. First is a statement of how old the comment is and 3 possible options follow to the right of that.
1.Delete 2. Comment 3. Select as best answer
Choose delete if that is your wish. When you click on delete you will be asked if you are sure you want to delete that answer and all you have to do is click on yes (delete).
Please see the screenshot I provided.
Thank you for your answers to this question, but I no longer have to delete the answer from the man (I am guessing it was a man) that wrote some promotional gibberish has disappeared.

I apologize, but it seems a "Best" answer was chosen on my question when I did not choose it. I hope the HP Team can help me or someone can inform me why that happened! I noticed it via my phone and I knew that I did not choose an answer and I was not going to do so any time...

There is a hubber (or two) who seems to follow particular questions, and posts incessently about the Bible, every comment, every answer, PARTICULARLY on questions that may pertain to something their faith disagrees with, or in questions that may question their faith's beliefs - but not just...

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 opposition?
