Me again!

How about a \'Do you really want to squash this question?\' option when you press the squash button? Those little blue buttons are quite easy to press by mistake and then the question just disappears forever ... never to be seen again.

I\'ve only managed to squash one question accidentally, and that was one of mine! But I have seen perfectly valid questions disappear for no apparent reason, and wonder if this could be why!

Just an idea!

I've done that too. Oct 5, 2001

I\'ve squashed one question accidentally while riding the range. Perhaps instead of just \"Do you really want to squash this question?\" we could get a choice among various reasons, and an \"other\" option we could fill in. That would allow easy compilation of statistics on what\'s being squashed, in case anybody\'s interested.

Jason added that. Not only must you confirm, you must give a reason. Thanks!
