    n George Orwell's "1984" the principal character spends his life erasing all official record of any person who has fallen into disfavour. Not only do they cease to exist, they never existed.

    A bit over a week ago I had a falling out with a hubber "weholdthesetruths", often called "WHTT". I decided to look at the hub over which we had fallen out. I discovered that WHTT is now a non-person. He has no entry, he has no hubs. The index has a few passing references to comments he made.

    I do not mourn his passing, but does anyone know why?

      Charles, it appears he was "banned." I am not certain I like the idea of that - regardless of how far out his view of the world and my own were.

        Hey DTR, when people are banned, they are told that if it continues, then their bans will become longer and longer, until it results in a permanent ban.

        Just to let you know. wink And, yes, I've been banned several times.

          I didn't know that Cagsil - seriously. While I have been pretty "harsh" at times, no one has pulled the trigger on me. Thanks for the info.

    Apparently WHTT has unpublished hubs. Why? What difference does it matter. People come and go all the time. hmm

    I suspect it was his inability to tell the difference between robust debate and personal insults, really personal insults.

      Well John, WHTT was a prick - no need to mince words. Still, it was lively while he was here....lol

        A lively annoyance is non-productive with regards to a discussion and/or debate. wink

    If you need instruction how to crash and burn on HP, heres the post that did 'weholdthesetruths' in.

    http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/73445

    The man was flailing wildly at everyone. IMO, what did him in was insulting a senior HP moderator. The moderator was trying to get him to chill. He had his own worldview, which we all do. He refused to accept any challenge to that view. Thats a problem if you want to do battle on the forums. And I did challenge it his view.

    I don't expect a Christmas card from weholdthesetruths this year.  Oh, well.

      Unfortunately Doug, that wasn't an isolated post, more like a typical post.
