Use the HTTP DELETE command to remove a person from the owner or moderator role of a forum.

Everyone has member-level access to forums; you cannot use this procedure to prevent a person from having member-level access to a forum.

Only the owner of a stand-alone forum can demote a person from owner or moderator access to member access.
