I don't see a problem with some limited ability to delete your own nodes. The "only if there are no replies" sounds like a good plan; there're two other conditions I'd like to see put on it, too. One would be that you can't delete the node if anyone's voted for or against it - or maybe that you have to accept a negative XP hit for doing so. The other would be a time limit; say, half an hour, or even shorter. Given those constraints, it would be useful. I know I could really have used it; my five-year -old goddaughter wanted to "play games" and submitted my Cable Modem Check
node three times. Instead of harrassing vroom
to delete the extras, it would have been nice to simply delete the extras and spank the child. <G>
