Title: Perhaps being able to lock or remove ones own thread is a bad idea?
Post by: Zero999 on October 04, 2010, 09:55:07 am
I've just noticed that it's possible to create a thread, then lock or delete it, even if others have responded to it.

Perhaps this is a bad idea?

Someone could make a troll thread about someone else, then lock it giving them no chance to defend themselves. Or someone could create a free energy thread and delete it when they don't like the response.

I think this has the potential to cause trouble.

I'm waiting for SMF version 2, but I'm not holding my breath.
