To delete a flagged forum topic or reply, use the HTTP DELETE method.
Only a person added to the global-moderator role of the Forums application can delete a flagged topic or reply. Deleted forum topics and replies cannot be restored.
See Authenticating requests
for information about how to authenticate the request.
To delete a flagged topic or reply, complete the following steps:
1. Retrieve the moderation service document. See Retrieving the Forums moderation service document for more details.
2. In the service document, find the collection with the <atom:category term="review-content" .../> child element, and make a note of the web address in its href attribute.
3. Send a GET request to the web address you copied from the previous step. In the returned feed, find the topic or reply that you want to delete, and make a note of the web address for it, which is specified in the href attribute of its rel=edit link.
4. Send a DELETE request to the web address of the edit link of the topic or reply that you noted in the previous step.
