Feature request

I'd like for the messsage box confirming that I want to delete something to be suppressed if I hold down ctrl & use the keyboard's delete key.
You're the UI guy though, if you don't think so I understand. It should be hard to do dangerous things to your data, I agree about that.

If we do have this feature, then I'd rather it were Shift and not Ctrl, so that it's consistent with how the Windows Recycle Bin behaves.

Actually, what really needs a confirmation message is deleting an audience. Apparently, the default if you delete an audience is to also delete any articles that use that audience. It's possible to change this behavior, but that setting is easy to miss.

There's nothing quite like that sinking feeling you get as you watch the status bar and realize that it's deleting all your articles...

John Topley, excellent point. I agree, the bahvior should be consistent with Windows'.
