integrity purposes.

When you "Delete" a moderator-approved post or reply through Fossil UI,
it's actually an edit with blank replacement content. The only way to
truly delete such artifacts is through [./shunning.wiki | shunning].

When a post is made by a user with <b>WriteTrusted Forum</b> capability
(<tt>4</tt>), it is posted in the same way, just with the
<tt>private</tt> and <tt>modreq</tt> table insertions skipped.

When a moderator rejects an update, that artifact is unceremoniously
removed from the tip of the block chain. This is safe because Fossil
prevents the creation of any replies to posts and replies that require
moderator approval, so there will be no other artifacts referring to it.
Rejecting an edit is even safer, since the original post remains behind,
maintaining referential integrity.

Having described all of the work that Fossil performs under the hood by
Fossil on behalf of its users, we can now give the short list of work
left for the repository's administrators and moderators:

it's actually an edit with blank replacement content. The only way to

When a user with <b>WriteTrusted Forum</b> capability (<tt>4</tt>)

When a moderator rejects an update, that artifact is unceremoniously
removed from the tip of the block chain. This is safe because Fossil
prevents replies to a reply or post awaiting moderator approval, so
referential integrity cannot be harmed.  Rejecting an edit is even
safer, since the original post remains behind, so that replies continue
to refer to that original post.
