--- Comment #2 from WhatamIdoing <wmf.whatamido...@yahoo.com> ---
Perhaps we should have a special process for redirects that handles 100%
blanking, or at least inquires or warns about it.  (You might want cats for
redirects, but probably not a default sort key).

I've merged bug 52036 and bug 60830 into their respective causes (both of those
are things we will fix with those corrections), and narrowed this to just be
about meta-data – things that don't display because they never create any
content.

On this one I'm minded to WONTFIX, but I could be argued around. What are the
reasons for letting people remove content they can't see with select-all?
