What is the purpose of the delete option in the Q & A forum?

    I have provided well thought out responses that have been deleted, for example when asked what the most important conversion rates are for nursing students to learn (and I am a very experienced registered professional nurse and previous nursing instructor) and others asking for personal opinion about end of the world events simply because the question poser did not care for my Biblical perspective - when she did not say in her question that she did not want a Biblical perspective. I think it is very rude and inappropriate to deleted answers when people provide respectful responses in good faith. I think it discourages participation on HubPages and lowers morale. Should the delete option on the Q & A section be eliminated?

      I too agreed with you. may be instead of deleting answers there can be a system which will automatically delete the answer if its score falls below a level(after voting down).
