I started a couple of threads in the forums, hoping to having enlightened conversation with like-minded people. But the threads have been hijacked.
Is there a way of closing these threads? Because I realize that one really cannot have enlightened conversation in the forums. There are too many 'time-wasters' around.
You're A FUNNY GUY...
Why Not Just Open Yet Another Thread and Arrogantly Rubbish the members who have generally all been on this site before You!
Perhaps you would find that seeking an 'Enlightened Conversation' is alot easier if you stand up and air your head; instead of remaining seated and airing your incontinent views!
If people have hyjacked your thread... it generally shows that little respect exists for the OP or the Subject.. Have you considered that point?
Calling your peers 'time-wasters' pretty much sums it up...
If you hold such contempt for others here... Why Are YOU Here?
I think you are doing the right thing. This is the best place to complain about people not agreeing with your point of view. But I do have a suggestion - perhaps if you made it a little more whiney and pleading instead of the passive/aggressive Christian thing? No one likes that.
Pratonix, if you want to have conversations with like-minded people, you'd be best to go in search of other forums (not on HubPages) designed especially for that purpose. There are several where you have to apply for membership so the moderators can control who joins. Yahoo Groups springs to mind.
HubPages is an open forum. By creating a post you open up a debate, which means that people with views for AND against are encouraged to comment. If you don't want to hear from people who disagree with you, HubPages is not a suitable place for your discussions.
I do not think you can delete a thread once someone else has commented on it. You could ask the staff to close the thread?
yet another to hijack. Well, we do have fun anyway, and red heads are the funnest. Are you tired of holding that camera yet Mark?
Cool... you brought the grog
I've fired the BBQ.. so I'll put the steaks and snags on.. and go off and toss a limp leaf or three into a salad Huh?
Good... got the bowl.. Now.. Where is that OP?
Whose got the music?
I'm tired from yesterdays party, but let's. Woot! the jug is still full btw.
I chased that limp leaf.... but the hot-air wind got the better... ok potato salad it is.
Cheers [clink] mate!

There are a lot of us who haven't been feeling safe on the forums. They've felt stalked, harassed and browbeaten.Sadly, some folks go with the letter of the law, but not the spirit of it in their posts.For an excellent post on why we need Forum Moderators, check out what Makingamark says here...

I was just curious. I have not seen a lot of hubbers that have been here at Hubpages for over two years..perhaps they are too busy hubbing away!

Hello all,I was just checking around in my activities to see where I spent too much time (reading in forum threads I am shocked that people write in) on HP or not enough time lately (minding my own business, I guess). Naturally, this means I am, again, into the biggest time-killer space for me on...

Bump our own threads 5 or 6 times within a few hours just to get people to comment on them? (When no one else is paying attention to that thread)

http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/93880That thread has been around as long as I can remember. And every day a new thread pops up about one group hating on another. These aren't friendly debates, they are nasty, hateful people hating on other people's cultures and beliefs. It is harmful, and nothing...

It's not my place to "hope" what I wish would happen is anything anyone pays attention to; but every once in awhile there will be some really, really, ugly thread that it's posted by some nut-case or else posted to stir things up.I'm not talking about some of the silliness and wackiness...
