The idea of making Scrap Nodes freely creatable has pros and cons. There are valid reasons why one person would want to have two scrap pages "running", but there would be some invasion of Scrap Pages then...

The idea of having a "don't delete" checkbox to prevent the (untimely) cleanup of such a node is also good, but this would mostly make sense if you could create Scrap Nodes like any other node. I think that a reminder after 5 days and a forced deletion after 10 days would be OK.

Of course the scrap nodes could be used for spamming etc., but as long as we can keep the scrap nodes from showing up under Newest Nodes, that's not too much of a hassle I think - anything that survives longer than 2 hours should be a permanent node anyway.
