    Why do liberals delete sincere Hub responses?

    Have you noticed that when your responses are deleted on a Hub, the Hub writer is almost always a liberal?

    I'm not talking about abusive comments, of course, because we all delete those. I'm talking about comments that simply conflict with what the Hub writer believes. I've never had a conservative do that, but I know of at least six liberals who simply delete comments they don't agree with.

    I'm not a liberal, but I've found the opposite to be true. Whenever my comments to a hub or a question are deleted, most often the author is a self-proclaimed Christian and/or Conservative. So whatever your experiences have been I don't think it's a one-sided problem.

      I've seen some fairly abusive comments emanate from you, Robert, when you get angry, so I'm guessing that's the real reason.

      Well you're guessing wrong. There are some Christians and conservatives here who are quite fond of censorship apparently.

      Again, I haven't seen one doing that except for abusive comments, and arrogant atheists can get abusive in a hurry, if you know what I mean. But I don't claim to have read everyone, so you may be right.

      I and others have commented on some hubs in a non-aggressive way and they were deleted without reason. And since you mention abuse, it's not a behavior confined to atheists. People from different political and religious persuasions delete comments.

    People do it sometimes just to be petty.

      Maybe, but there are those who simply cannot tolerate dissenting opinions on topics like atheism, firearms, and politics so they simply delete those comments.

      Well that's is true.  Some in the forums choose to ignore the respondent period.

    Will , as you know the path to all  liberal  wisdom passes directly through the horse barn before traveling , happily on down  the yellow brick road ! Yes , my friend .   It is there that one procures the necessary pair of horse blinders that are  an  essential  part of the little uniform for purist liberal idealisms !   Sorry Will !

    You see Will , one must first  voluntarily blind oneself considerably to the extent necessary for them to hold  strength to their own voice  in the P.C. crowd . Why , you were about to ask ? Let me explain ,  Liberals can't even agree in masses ! Yes , it's very true , one thing that will open a can of worms quicker than a gas powered can opener ;  Put more than one liberal in a  small  room !  Will , Best realize my friend that you will never have that very thing most  desired by any  reasonable man ---  a liberal friend !

    In my experience, on this forum and others, liberals don't want to be presented with actual facts that refute their spin.  Many times things are written without the author doing any qualified research and then they start citing Mom & Pop operations as proof or using Wikipedia as an authoritative source not realizing that those "sources" can be changed by just about anyone with a computer.  If users get nasty and start calling names, do ad homonym attacks, or fail to stay on the topic I have a tendency after a while to delete people's comments myself and usually give them a warning or two before having to take that action.

    I have only had this happen when I present facts, and fact sources that dispute what the author was presenting.

    It seems that most liberals just hate facts and refuse to see them published.  I usually provide at least two links to reliable information that completely disagrees with what the hub author stated.

    It is amazing how much mis-information circulates on the internet and is readily grabbed and believed by many.

      Misinformation and deflection are the liberal credo Mike.

      Mike nailed it as always. The impetus for this was having several of my comments deleted simply because I did not agree with the premise of the Hub.

    I've had both conservatives and born-again Christians and liberals delete responses occasionally.  I must be able to tick EVERYONE off!  Seriously guys, some more liberally-minded people are open-minded about conservatively-minded viewpoints and others are not.  Some more conservatively-minded people are open-minded about liberal viewpoints, and others are not.  Whether open-minded or no, the author of the article does have the right to delete a response to it that doesn't please him/her, soooooo.....it's all good.

      And you're correct, but I prefer lively debate on such topics over censorship, which is the real point of this little exercise! Thanks for the comment!

    I don't believe it has anything to do with a writer's political stance.
    Some people delete any comment which [challenges] the statements made in their hub! I've seen my comments deleted off of dating and relationship hubs! They're only receptive to those with (their) opinion.
    These hubs had nothing to do with politics or religion.
    Some writers will not include a comment section for their hubs at all in order to avoid any feedback from readers who disagree with them.
    Nevertheless it's their hub and they're entitled to delete comments or not allow them at all. I wouldn't let it bother me.

      You may well be right! Thanks for your input.

    I sure agree with you Will and also I have noted that if you rebut a liberal's remark and offer proof on subject or ask them for proof of their view they never come back. It is as if their thoughts are good enough they don't need proof.
    So many things going on today in the word and liberals (many times large groups of them) will protest and even harm people basing their whole reasoning on an absolute lie. It really and truly baffles me perhaps because I use to be (or thought I was) a liberal; but apparently I was not and I surely will never be again if I was.

      I think most of  us were liberals when we were young, Pollyannalana, but most of us grew out of it. Some did not.

      What exactly do you mean by "liberal?"

      Since today's liberals have changed the definition it would be hard to say. I do think they will be the downfall of America. Time will tell.

    While I can't answer for the "other five" "liberals", I have certain criteria that I follow for deleting comments:
    1. The comment must say something original or say it in an original way.
    2. The comment must not be argumentative.
    3. The comment must not be directed to or offensive to another commenter. In other words "calling someone out", or calling another commenter a liar.
    4. The comment must ADD to the specific topic of the hub.
    5. The comment must not be off topic.
    6. Certain commenters have lost the "privilege" of commenting on my hubs or questions by their actions in the past. They also continue to use the same belligerent words while leaving comments.
    7. The person who writes the hub or question has full editorial control over deleting comments and may exercise that right at any time. They are the "author" of the hub or question.
    8. The comment may be so grammatically poor that no one can understand the comment.
    9. The comment may actually break a rule posted in the TOU of HubPages.
    10. The commenter may actually request that their comment be deleted.
    11. Comments may be deleted in error.

    This is not an all-inclusive list. Comments may be deleted totally at the whim of the author of the hub or question. It is the author's right to do so.

      Well, I guess that covers just about any response at all, and you are certainly free to do so. However, those who post provocative Hubs but  will not tolerate dissenting comments risk losing their followers.

    Since I got the response I was looking for, I'll close the question. I'll also note that I was right...there are those who simply cannot tolerate dissent, no matter how sincere. In my experience, they were all liberals.
