Currently, there is no way to remove a question (unless a Fluther moderator removes it for inappropriate content). Is this a feature you’d like to see? Why?

Our thinking is Fluther is an open forum so the information shared here should be archived and available to everyone.

I think there needs to be a mechanism for removing your own postings, Q or A, as well as some means for flagging postings by others that are obviously wrong or otherwise offensive or unacceptable.

@chasrob: There is already a flagging mechanism for both questions and answers. Just click “Flag as abuse”.

I think a distinction between incorrect and abuse would be useful. Also, I’m not seeing the flag as abuse function in the iPhone interface. Is it in there somewhere?

An option to detach questions from your profile would be helpfull. It’s not hard to imagine leaving a question like “what’s the side effect of taking too much coke?”

@chaosrob: the flagging function is hidden on the iphone version to keep the interface simple. We may reconsider this, as we’re planning to revamp the iphone version pretty soon.

@krypin: good point. We’re definitely thinking about ways to allow anonymous questions.
