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.
yes but they don't delete a comment to a question once the question is active.
Disappearinghead; I was flattered to see my answer chosen as 'best', and I thank you. Yours is a good question. Both questioner and respondent always need to be aware of the 'rules of discussion' which allow a civil and fruitful exchange of views.
I know why, narcissisism - they are small minded people who are unable to put anything above their own ego, wants, or desires.
Good analogy with the voting. I wrote some great exposes on two California elections. Only a few people found one, nobody found the other... but both were first page Google results. People must vote based on the information they receive passively.
Having answered many questions I have to say you are right on.
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.
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. .
Because anyone who claims that they know the truth is a liar. Let all men be liars and God true.
That makes real sense "anyone who claims that they know the truth is a liar" So no one can know truth? Well that is a balanced view isn't it. What was the name of the asylum you are in?
...it's called America !
Ah, I've just had a comment deleted because I dared to question the questors reasoning.
I am about to enjoy that censorship as well in another forum. Ah, America! Land of the Free!
I think I was just censored - told the person whose hub I commented on (which was offensive), that I was as God made me - deal with it. Perhaps he didn't want to???
Oh, he dealt with you alright! It's called revenge.
Hahaha maybe he did!
There was more said than that my friend.
Yes, you personally attacked. If you do it again, I will delete them again. There is no need for personal attacks, PERIOD.
To be completely fair to both here. Everyone has different concepts of what is and what isn't an insult. Jthomp perhaps what he said is considered normal where he lives. How can we really know?
Just let it go World. Just let it go.
How old are you World. Will your ego not just let it go?
By your definition.... I don't think that to be a personal attack. I was just pointing out you are showing your maturity level. Just an observation.
Enough said world. I prove my point. God bless.
