Re^4: The ability to delete
in thread The ability to delete
I know what you meant, but it's a question of perspective: if the ability to edit a node comes with the assumption you won't remove the content (because that's not responsible behaviour), why add the ability to remove the node?
The only reason to use it would be an accidental double-posting. It's possible to prevent most of those programmatically and I think that would be more productive than adding a delete button that in effect should only be used for just that occasion.
