hi Hans
thanks for the speedy response
lets see

i put a (:foxmessage:) on the resulting page (FoxNotifyLists.UserGroupA)
and received the expected msg: PERMISSION DENIED to delete on  

and my FoxAuth is currently set to 'read'...

yes, still the case...

i find it interesting that the page deletion stuff from  
FoxPageManagement work pretty well - i presume because the user is  
adding the term "delete", which results in the wiki. i wonder if the  
permissions are currently looking more down on the more destructive/ 
straightforward acts of deletion...??

any ideas for where to start?
