    Not that I know of but I do know I unfollow plenty of people without offering an explanation. If I am no longer reading their work, if their subjects have changed, or if I have seen them be rude to other hubbers I unfollow. Don't worry about it. More people will show back up here or on other social networks.

    yes. I did comment a hub, no sarcastic remarks or bad remarks. Just a normal comments and even voted up, that hubber deleted me! Anyway, the hub is about ladies underwear. Maybe she thought i am a man?? Geezz... she should at least read my hub and profile first before deleting me!

    How would we know? I guess I never thought about it or checked up on it. I have unfollowed people if I find I no longer enjoy or read their work. I take following someone seriously so I don't follow a ton of people.

    Yup - twice by the same hubber - perhaps not deleted, but a long, and reasonably polite comment on their hub (which disagreed with them...see below) was denied - plenty of others were okayed after mine - all of whom agree.

    I commented on a hub they had written advising them that their information was incorrect, and were mis-representing a group of people to whom they did not obviously belong. I probably wasn't as polite as I am here paraphrasing it - but I wasn't nasty, or even mean, I just asked them to get their facts straight, and if they were not part of the group they were discussing (as though they were an expert), then why were they commenting on it and telling them how to live?

    Same hubber - different hub - this particular person seemed to like writing about a group they do not belong to as though they were an authority on such things....- much the same line, but this time I presented the facts to them (I belong to this particular group...).

    Perhaps I know why this hubber has denied/deleted - they do not like to be proven wrong, with actual facts...and can't really approve a comment which does so, can they?

    I make it a rule not to delete anything unless completely nasty, out of hand and rude - personal attacks, slander etc.  Argument is fine, dicussion is awesome, disagreeing with my POV - doubly awesome. My rule is to let it be - because swaying my comments/answers to side with me is just.....childish.

    I'm not sure if you mean delete your comment or unfollow you. In either case, I have had both of those things happen. You can't please all the people all of the time. If people change their minds and decide they don't want to continue following me, it does not concern me. I have unfollowed people, mostly because they turned out to be not what I thought they were. If people deny my comments, that's a little more bothersome to me. In that case too, it's their choice, but I probably will not be leaving them another comment.

    yes ,I only  had one hubber delete me.Don't know why and  It will be nice to have an explanation why he deleted me. Oh well, it's not the end of the world and people are not perfect and so am I. :-)

    Are you talking about someone unfollowing you, or deleting your comments?

    Some people don't want comments that are off topic, frivolous, or mean because it can have a negative effect on their traffic and income. Others just more control over the conversation on their hubs and questions.  It's their right because they wrote the hub/question. You can do the same on your hubs and questions.  Just browsing some of your activity, I see you leave comments that are funny, but not particularly deep. 

    People unfollow other people for a variety of reasons. Since you don't have any hubs, it's not surprising that someone would  stop following you.

      Good answer. You are correct, I do leave light comments and make no hubs, for a reason. Thank you for answering.

      I too am guilty of leaving snarky and critical comments.  So when people delete them, I can't say I'm all that surprised

    I've accidentally deleted an answer to a question before now. It was pretty annoying as I couldn't get it back, and didn't want to offend the hubber. Just pressed the wrong button.
