    Why was my political question regarding leonard peltier removed from forum?

    I posted a political question earlier about Leonard Peltier and after less than six hours it was removed.  Is this censorship?

    If you asked the question in the question and answer section and not in the forums, it might have been removed for many reasons. Primarily we see questions removed in the question and answer section but not normally in the forums. Sometimes questions are removed because they more of a discussion, poll, etc. If the question was removed from a forum, then I would check with the help desk for further explanation. If the question was removed from the question and answer section.. .I would just start a forum post about the question. I would encourage you to continue with your question/topic because Leonard Peltier is someone everyone should know about... One of the draw back of questions is that people can only answer them once... I hope this helps.

    Hubpages can be a little too sensitive about political stuff, both in the forums and in the Q&A section. I did notice they don't mind that much about hubs, so maybe you should just write hubs and focus on the comments on them.

    I am sure any question about Leonard Peltier is going to bring a heated discussion. Just the mention of his name strikes up flames for most people. Perhaps the question was not removed because of censorship. I am guessing the question may have been removed because of the answers. I would ask the HubPages help desk to be sure.

    I don't think HubPages is about censorship. But, I do believe HubPages is about making sure we all have a pleasant experience on their platform. I'm all for that!
