I asked a question, why was it removed?

It was, "has anyone bought Demi Lovato's new CD? What did they think of it?" it isn't offensive so why did they take it off?

If you are finding that your questions are being removed, it may be a good idea to reread the Community Guidelines. In particular poll/survey type questions are not allowed, and can be removed.

Don't take it personally. It is happening a Lot.
The site is new, and in order to avoid any embarrassment (I am guessing, charitably), they have apparently set up a system where some of the mods are answerable only to god.

I have seen conversations where a questioner asked about the removal of her inoffensive question, and a mod just declared there had never been such a question . . . despite two other commenters pointing out that they had Seen the question involved!
That's just one example, I could go on and on.
In fact, I suspect This comment will get a "knock on the door", and be dragged screaming into oblivion before too long.

But I am optimistic for the long term: The utility of this sort of site having been established, competitors will arise (pretty low entry costs), and then Ask.com will either fix itself, or become irrelevant.

In a sense, are not most of the questions here of the survey variety? The irony is that the question I asked was out of curiosity about the popularity ( geographic extent) of Ask. I thought " who better to ask than the members."
Nevermind, I see that someone complained about my vicious " poll" question.
