If you have to have that kind of flexibility then of course this system doesn't work. But usually, for a message board app, you don't need that. It's a "write once and leave it" kind of application. And let's say you do delete a message, the fact that it's gone doesn't destroy the relationships of all the other messages...

    Even if it has 'child' messages, in case you have some kind of reply system? :) When deleting a message, you should also make sure to delete child messages, since orphan messages will get inaccessible if you dont (which ofcourse take up space, slow down queries, etc)
