In fact, project admin can already damage a project but cannot remove 
information submitted by other persons than themselves. 
It already happened here that some project admins was no longer in 
good terms with the others admins of the same project. 
CVS allows you to remove revisions but not files (they go in attic). 
In case of illegal content, it would be to us to handle it, not the project 
Aside from that, I removed the offending comment from your bug report.

I under reservations about the ability to delete "history",

but my request would be restricted to project admins, who

already could do complete damage to a project.

Also, what is meant by "history"?  Tracking all changes to

a particular item?  CVS allows the removal of revisions,

so what makes bug reports any more special than a CVS


To me, it appears the commenting feature has a similiar

feel as forum software, and an administrator should have

the right to remove inappropriate comments.

Note, there could be potential legal consequences.

A malicious user could post any kind of text (and images)

to a bug, and if such text and/or images have liabilities

concerns, or violate laws, there should be a mechanism in

place that allows deletion of such date beyond hand-crafting

SQL queries.

I do request that the offending text of bug #4719 of the

mhonarc project be removed since it does pollute the

legitimate bug history, and since I do not know what it

says, I prefer to get rid of it.
