    How often do you Deny comments from another HP member?

    If you do deny them is it because of profanity/insults, you don't like what they say because it goes against your hub, you are suppressing commentary, or another reason.

    I did one time when the person making the comment went off the deep end when proven wrong by posting facts.

    He resorted to name calling, and abusive language laced with four letter words.

    I put in a comment that if he would rewrite the comment in a civil manner it would be posted.

    It seems that the worst abusers in the comment section are those who have never even written a hub of their own.  They are just drive-bys looking for a place to spread their hate.

    Only a few times, and it is usually when they go on a personal attack.
    As for me, I sometimes put a note at the end of my comment that tells the author that if I went astray, then delete my comment.

    I think I've denied a grand total of three comments in all the time I've been here. One was because the commenter was abusive, and the other two were simply spam ("hi great post, plz follow back," that sort of thing).

    I have written an entire hub about hub authors deleting comments. It's one of my more popular hubs actually.
    The author of the content here at hub pages has the right and the responsibility to moderate their content.
    The most frequent reason that I use in the Q&A section is that the person commenting does not actually answer the question as asked. Instead they go off on some unrelated topic, or drone on like Donald Trump trying to add 2+2 or dodge the question entirely.
    The second most frequent reason is the person comments just to be nasty and try to stir up flame wars.They are easily recognized by the fact that they immediately go on the offensive and try to blame others or the authors for whatever issue they feel needs to be complained about.
    The 3rd reason is that people often troll the Q&A section just looking for a place to spread propaganda for their "causes" whatever they may be, the most frequent of which is proselytizing.
    If you can't face the prospect of having your precious thoughts deleted on another's hub or content, then simply do not post there.Obviously, the author doesn't want your opinion!

      Thanks for sharing - I'm certain many of us will check out your hub on the topic.

      Before you read her hub, you should know that Austinstar deletes all comments that she disagrees with, no matter how civil & educational they are. She enjoys suppressing others' comments, always, if they do not agree with her worldview.

      I agree with Savvydating from personal experience.Other respected hubbers like Will Star can also atest to the FACT that she deletes comments that show her opinions wrong&then lies as to why she deleted them accusing you of a personal attack.

      Savvy and Tsad - Nope, I only delete YOUR comments, mostly because I don't like you two.

      I'll be sure to never comment on your posts then.

      Really? You are intimidated by proxy? I allow far more comments than i delete. In spite of what savvy and tsad say. They just have sour grapes for words. If they wrote intelligible comments i would allow them.

      Austin - I'm not one who likes to be silenced for voicing an opposition to what I read.  You can certainly choose to selectively edit your comments as you deem necessary, but you've obviously demonstrated your bias by your comments.

      Not only she's intellectualydishonest she has again demonstrated here that she has no problem lying about it,as I have copies of comments I made to her that she deleted afterward saying they were attacks.Gladly send to you so u can see uself

      RJ Schwartzposted 2 years agoin reply to this

      No, Tsad, its obvious that you and Savvy are correct, but that is her choice - I'm not judging people for their personal guidelines of conduct.  I have never censored a comment myself - I have warned people but that's it

      Well that's the thing Ralph,an honest hubber wouldn't delete a comment immediately&then make a false claim about why.I'd leave it to demonstrate their incivility&warn them anymore will be deleted.Star is not the only one who deletes&lies

      I can only recall one comment I made being denied, and it was because I proved an entire opinionated hub wrong in about four sentences.  I can't remember the author but I got a good laugh out of it

      tsadjatkoposted 2 years agoin reply to this

      Well, those are the kind of hubbers, well talk about a good laugh, I'll just say as far as writing and free expression goes giving them a hubpage account is like handing a loaded weapon to a child.

      Just wanted to share this since you want to believe my detractors - WillStarr 14 months ago from Phoenix, Arizona

      I sometimes disagree with you Lela, but you are still one of my most admired people here on HubPages. (direct quote)

      No doubt before you deleted his&my comments on your hubpage saying they were personal attacks when they weren't.You ask him just what it was he admired about you?I'll tell you right now it isn't censoroffacts contrary to ur opinion then lying.

      Tsad - I deleted a duplicate comment made by Will, and he missed that. Your hateful comments, on the other hand, aren't worth publishing.

      I see you started your own question thread quite similar to this one Austin - are you looking for a sympathetic voice to give you ideas to battle TSAD?

    20. Austinstar profile image88
      Austinstarposted 2 years agoin reply to this

      All Tsad has to do is stop commenting on my content. Then I won't ever be able to delete him. That goes for anyone. If you play on my content, you have to play by my rules. Otherwise he can haunt someone else for his jollies.

      It's too bad you have such a strong censorship mentality - squashing out anyone else's opinion seems un-American to me.

    I have never had to delete any comments RJ. I once warned someone that if they continued to debate the topic of my hub I may be forced to delete further comments, but they ceased arguing so I didn't have to.

    With well over 300 Hubs posted and around 800 comments, I think I've only 'Denied' one.   Not because of views expressed but because of insulting and personal language - though I cannot remember even what that was, for it was so long ago.

    This is not to say that I have not 'refuted' by way of legitimate argument remarks that I might not have agreed with.  Having a debate or forum about a subject we've written about is fair, I think.   Getting personal with a writer is something else again.

    As it is, I've found just about everyone who writes on Hubpages are pretty tolerant and easy to get along with.

      I think we follow a similar approach, although you've been at it much longer than I have.  I want to hear counter points to what I write - It's like scientific research and opens my mind to more ideas.

    In my four or five years here, I've deleted only one comment from a person who kept coming back again and again and commenting. I left his others and explained to him why I deleted last one and not to comment again. He was going to websites and cutting and pasting to suggest the very propaganda that I said I had tried and it did not work. Apparently he did not actually read my hub. I think I may have deleted a couple of spams. I have never had anyone to use profanity beyond what I thought acceptable.

    Surprisingly, In the four years I've been on this site, I've only deleted one known hubber. That person was so off-topic, and just rambled on about something political, personal....i don't know, I think he was off his meds when he was writing.

    On the other hand, I've dumped numerous responses because they were spams. In some cases, the spam was meant for someone else (who knows?)

    I have denied a commenter only once.  It was a blatant attack.  This person was a known harasser who was banned from HubPages, and returned under false pretenses at least twice.  Though I denied the comments, I saved them in case the person continued to harass me (she didn't).

    Very nice question. I do not deny in this sense. But I use intuition. I can very clearly see sometimes where the conversation is going. I am a servant, and as such I may try to re-direct the mind; change the angle of vision. Sometimes I know that this will not work. I have a friend here that even if I said 100 things of Love, there will still be a yes, but .....

    So what I eventually do I call 'silent love.' We are all God's children. Some know this consciously, others feel their way. Still, my purpose is always to love; to serve; to reach the Heart; to inspire ...and for this I sometimes vary the route I take.

    I also very rarely answer more than three times, particularly in Q's and A's. I wish to encourage the childlike nature, the Heart; not the analysing mind. Great question.
