in thread Remove nodes?

Being able to remove nodes which have no replies would be sufficient for me. The problem I see this as addressing is where a node has been accidentally created as empty - I would hope people are less likely to reply to empty nodes.

I suppose you could permit removal of nodes with replies if you had some policy. For example:

  • Re-parent all replies to a deleted node to the parent of the deleted node. (Not much worse than people being allowed to edit out the text of a node as far as making the threading confusing).
  • If a node is deleted which has replies, change the maintainer to Daemon/Zombie/Admin and set the text to empty
Any good?
