re: You can now delete issues on GitHub (different from closing them) VIEW POST


This certainly has it's pros & it's cons. But in my case, this is definitely needed. I have an app that allows users to create GitHub issues without even needing an account. And this feature has been abused. Now I will be able to delete the spam.

Another pro, stems from GitHub's new "ProBot" apps. Some of these apps create issues automatically. This can however automatically create a bunch of issues that should not of been made in the first place due to a bug.

Despite the above, I personally feel this was a bad move. But I have an idea for something in the middle. You should only be able to delete your own issues


Ok spam is annoying, but what difference do you see between a closed and a deleted issue ?
As the default filter is on open issues, I don't see both anyway.
