I am new to this site and I was really surprised by the unusual amount of interest my first question has attracted. Apart from a fair number of answers, tens of comments have been posted; part of them have been deleted, others were moved to chat and some still survive on the original post. The whole lot appeared to be “too much” for mods to deal with and as a consequence the question was “kicked off” the hot network. I didn’t know that an ongoing question could be removed, for whatever reason, from the hot network, but that’s what happened. Now I have two questions if I may:
have other questions been removed from the hot network before, on SE Politics?
I suspect the real reason for the removal was not so much the considerable amount of posts it attracted but the controversial views that were raised with respect to the theme involved creating an undesirable conflicting climate within the community. Am I correct?
