Re: Deletion problem

Fair question, PHX. I know nothing about this website. All I know is that industry standards exist. I could not program this website, but I used to be a programmer a long time ago. I have a tincy-wincy insight therefore, how they MIGHT work. It is not necessarily true that I am correct. It is a Zen...
