Why do some people ask a question then delete the answers they don't like?


A number of times I've gone back to look at an answer I gave and the questioner has deleted it. Do they wish to embrace censorship or silence the opposition?

    The place for debate is in the forums, I have known HPs delete questions from this section because they encouraged debate.

    Comments can go off on tangents that have nothing to do with the hub but usually the commenter can be rained in by the hubber. The best hub writers I've experienced warn before they delete and make it clear why they deleted.

    Rude is right! Even a bad comment reveals something about its author.- Some people do get off on the power they get to censor, probably because they feel they have little power in their pathetic lives.

    I know why, narcissisism - they are small minded people who are unable to put anything above their own ego, wants, or desires.

    Yep, that is the excuse censors always give. Only censors know the truth. Why would you fear hearing something that is not the truth? Better to allow the light to shine upon it. .
