Preserve Deleted Discussion Board Posts

    Deleting discussion board posts is potentially a disastrous event, since it not only immediately and permanently removes the post, but also any post that is a descendant of that post.

     

    Rather than deleting the posts from the database, I'm advocating making use of the DELETED lifecycle status in the database.  Deleting the post will still remove the post and all children from the GUI, but by altering the lifecycle status, the text of such posts could be recovered by an administrator, if necessary.
