    Why are liberals the most childishly cherished political entity only here ? Kind of like a cheap soap opera -------Ummm like the Oprah show ?

      Geez, where did you disappear to? I have not seen you since that pasting Roy Moore got in the Alabama Special Election Senate Race earlier this year.

      I don't mind taking my liberalism to other forums and sharing good progressism with those desperately in need.

        To be a liberal is to be an emotional child.

        I recall one user who ended up quitting Hubpages after being banned for an innocuous offense and he seemed to be pretty far left (or at least, more to the left than I am).

        The moderators may be left-leaning but I haven't experienced the sort of censorship you allude to. Honestly, in light of your recent post I'd be more worried about Twitter, YouTube etc.

          Twitter , so far,  has been tolerant of a lot of offensive language that I see every day.
          Who knows ,  there needs to be fairly open and unlimited discussions or we cure do party divisions  .  Fake media  no matter the name is just plain bad for business .

            Offensive language is one thing, but thought policing is another. Every now and then I hear about someone being banned from Twitter for straying too far from accepted speech. The most recent case is comedian Owen Benjamin: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-0Qbq1eBy34

        ahorsebackposted 3 years agoin reply to this

        I don't think so  , just coming off about a 120 day ban here I can say that these forums are shadowed by liberal moderators who bend to liberal cause . There are far more liberals here allowed a wider spread of so "offending "others ,than conservatives. One more outlet of liberal propaganda that when debates are divisive they then block conservative opinions. I am here merely for a time at the mercy of someone who will be "offended" by conservative opines.  Hubpages, like Face-Book , like Twitter and all liberal media shadow bans , " Free speech" is only free as long as the overall liberal agenda isn't threatened by opposing view .

        And I do not care who this offends.

          I've read your posts. I'm not certain bans are unwarranted. Civility in communications is not an issue of politically correctness. It's common courtesy.

            ahorsebackposted 3 years agoin reply to this

            My opines are  just a different shade from ultra leftism that are  so prevalent today .  And because such leftism dominates the forums  , it wins out . My sense of civility is no different than anyone  here ,  it's just the new tactic of the left to silence opposing views  .

            1. Live to Learn profile image78
              Live to Learnposted 3 years agoin reply to this

              I would certainly agree that different tactics can each be less than civil and I have seen posts from those with leftist views, which seem ban worthy, passing the inexplicable hub pages litmus test for banning. But, I still stand by my assessment. You can be over the top, at times, and at those moments I wouldn't fault the moderators a ban.

              So, yes. They do appear to give left opinions more leeway. However, if you break the rules you don't really have a right to complain on the outcome.

              A120 day ban indicates more than one ban. Ever hear the definition of insanity?

                I refuse to have my independent opinions silenced , if they are not welcome here it bothers me not ,   There are plenty of places where they're welcome .  I have seen venomous hatred from the left or alt left go unchallenged  here many times , downright hatred in fact  and yes ,  they do give leftist opines far more leeway. 
                Insanity ? ....Politically ,That would be letting people silence you because they disagree  , you may not see me here but I will not ever be silenced.

      That you just - finally - got banned here is a testament to the tolerance of this site.  You and your cronies have done more to force intelligent writers off HubPages than any other one thing I can mention.

      And now that you are back, what do you do?  Start an inflammatory discussion.

      HubPages says there are 41,000 writers here.  Six years ago there were more than 200,000.  You have to wonder what happened?

        ahorsebackposted 3 years agoin reply to this

        Really Kathryn , That should tell you something in itself , because the left's venomous  hatred of all things towards the conservative side of debates is more than obvious including many who are never banned.  The fact that there are less writers here than before says much about hubpages .  I like the forums  wherever and yet when shadow banning happens it only hurts the site itself , whoever that site is , look at the precious Face book dying a rather fast death as we speak . But ,why don't you explain how I or others drive writers away from here and not the policies of Hubpages themselves?

      This entire thing is silly, you get banned for a lack of manners and decorum in these forums. It has nothing to do with one's ideological positions one way or another.

      Conservatives practically invented the word and concept 'excuses', whenever they don't win. It does not matter whether Hub-pages HQ is in San Francisco or Dallas.

      There are fewer writers (not less) because the level of discussion has declined greatly and is too often ignorant and petty.  Not to mention, hardly anyone bothers to write actual articles any more.

      They said, "No, its NOT about being politically correct here on HP topical forums." I would agree.

      Think about it: without you and jacklee Im, they'll be going, "Yea, that's right, man … " I whole heartedly concur!"... "Where's the like button?"..."So cool of you to say!"... "Right on!"... "Groovy!"… "Far out!"

        Kathryn,  The alt-liberals will hi-jack the political  conversations and attempt to control the  numbers of us by hate-banning because they have to  gain  votes, as they have to allow illegals drivers licences to vote, they did it with the woman's vote , the African American vote , the young academic vote , the organised labor vote  .  I fail to see how anyone cannot see that  liberals play the identity politics game  for votes.
        Let's gain the "groups " and ignore the individual . They are admittedly Orwellian  .  By the way have you been to Twitter ?
        They will never silence us .
