Forum OpenACS Development: Re: Deleting a user throws errrors

Posted by Iuri Sampaio on
p.s. I'm aware, deleting a user is a big issue in a community based system. I also agree that a user must be never deleted, plus the task to remove all content generated by the user can be a real nightmare. thus, deleting a user is not recommended.

Best wishes

Disabling the user is in general sufficient as "deletion" and is safe with respects to foreign keys. Other strategies or policies might be thought of, but I don't see any clear benefit that would come from there ATM.

Glad you could solve it!
