Allow readers to delete posts? (3 posts)

    Quick question:

    Is there any way to set up a 2.8 blog, perhaps to only be read by members, that gives them a big, fat button that deletes any post on it that they don't like?

    Sounds a bit batty, I know, but I could use that functionality. Really. Would WP ever let me do it?

    Thanks,
    Luke

    but why delete such posts? If they dont like any post, they simply can leave that. Giving access to your posts (and giving them right to delete them) is not a good idea...

    I knew this question would draw such responses...

    It's a members-only blog where hundreds of posts are sent in per hour. (!) They are just tiny little snippets, no one put any thought into them, kind of like a bulletin board.

    Since it's not in anyone's interest to delete a post that isn't spammy, this would give the community an instant spam button.

    Thanks in advance,
    Luke
