I Refuse to Delete Comments Even When I Do Not Agree With Them

Everyone is entitled to an opinion even if it is questionable 102 People

    Why Bother

    That's what I'm here for. Interaction on an open forum. The only comment I'd even consider deleting is something too vulgar to really be viewed, but the EP censors get those anyway so I just get more material to comment back with. In chess, every move opens a counter move. You...

    No, I Refuse To!

    You can say what you want, where you want. I'll leave it there for everyone to see along with my reply to it. If you want to be closed minded, your choice. If you want to make your own self esteem rise by lowering others' (or trying to) then feel free to. But don't think you can...

    Debate Is Healthy

    I actually like a little healthy challenge now and then. So when I get comments I do not agree with I usually challenge them back or depending on the nature of the comment I wish that person a nice day.But under no circumstances will I delete that comment. There should be a way...

    I Don't Delete, I Just Block!

    Even when the person is abusive with their comments, I don't delete them. I just block the person, after a while, if they insist on continuing with being rude to me. The comments will stay there, until that person delete it themselves! And I had a few double back and removed the...

    I Won't Delete Your Comments

    No I won't delete anything you write, even if it is not my view point and appears to be unsupportive and somewhat dubious. Everyone should take responsibility for what they write so I believe that if it is written, people should see it. I have also decided not to delete my own...

    Debate

    what would be the point of being a debater if you are going to delete a comment because you don't agree with it, though if it's an insult i will just make a joke out of it to **** the person of   XD

    Don't Get It

    Why would i; if the comments are there people can read the story, see all that was said and judge for themselves. Also a good author will take the comments as an opportunity to clarify points and clear up misconceptions, explain fully and further their point...

    Yes Except...

    except if it's spam, or causes extreme harm to leave up. Like posting someone else's private contact info or something illegal etc. There are a few things that would be irresponsible to leave up from an objective standpoint. Or just have no redeemable value to anyone ever. (but...

    Traces of a *(EDIT* Their) Bad Character..

    I play with idiots who comment negatively, it shows everyone who drops by that I am unafraid to answer a challenge. It's a good basis for deeper ideas to surface, as well. Like the title of a mentor's debut solo album, I say "Viva Hate".

    Never

    I will never delete a comment. This is for many reasons, the main being that I hate the idea of it. I absolutely can't stand it when people delete my comments and most of the time it's because they either find what I say offensive (to that I say get over it, if something I say...

    I Will Neither Block People Nor Delete Comments

    Personally, I will neither block nor delete comments. It aggravates me slightly when I am having a polite and interesting discussion with someone and then they block me or delete my comments because they feel threatened, instead of giving a counter argument. But, at the end of...

    Criticism Is Good...

    Without it we could not learn what others think of us. We should be open and able to take criticism. We can not better ourselves if we do not listen to others. I do not delete comments unless they have been duplicated by the sender. Ep glitches occasionally and comments get...

    A Different Point of View

    Just because I don't agree with them that person might have a valid point that I didn't even consider and might help me in my future endeavours. That would be very close minded of me to just delete them.
