However, as the reply button was already there (and looked bad alone),
I decided to put the delete button there too. Perhaps design by
is not the best idea. I do think the reply button should be up top,
If you have a better page layout idea, just modify the HTML of a page
(or the xsl files) to show me what you want, and I can integrate it.
I will say add this, though: As I systematically deleted spam from

Eh? Debian passwd has it for sure.
It seems Mac OS X doesn't, so maybe BSD also lacks it.
Now that I poke around, I notice 'sg' is also missing on osx.
Well, you could also use 'sudo -u lurker -- lurker-search ...'.
Of course, then you'd need a lurker user.
Plus, if that user has a login shell, you've just increased the
security risk (the password for www-data is sent via a cookie).
I should probably mention that 'https' is a good idea.
OTOH, getting the lurker group password is pretty useless.
If you're running BSD, and that's why 'sg' and 'passwd -g' are
missing, could you ask a BSD guru what the equivalent is?

Previously, an undocumented bug of lurker-regenerate was that it
would quietly restore deleted email to undeleted status. The new
lurker-regenerate will simply skip/not import deleted email.
