Safely removing a discussion?

Hi guys, A user posted some html in a new discussion he was creating and it his post came out blank. Ontop of that the 'edit' option vanished. If you reply to the discussion the latest replys dont appear either (even though they are being entered in the database). I went to lum_comment, found the post & edited it's content. After doing so there was no change. The discussion was still mashed. I then edited type format to text rather than html. Still nothing, then I changed the value for 'deleted' to 1. Still nothing. What's the safest way to go about removing this post? Do I just drop the fields in mysql or is there more?

    If you change the deleted value to 1 in lum_discussion does that get rid of it out the list? That's probably the easiest thing to do. What HTML did he post though? This sort of behaviour shouldn't really exist...

    I've deleted the whole post so unfortunately I wont be able to post it here. It was something on the lines of <p><li> just open tags. Changing val for deleted in lum_comment does nothing. I've just taken a look in lum_discussion & it does not have a 'deleted' field. When you said deleted where you reffering to 'active' ?

    Yeah that's probably the one. There should be a flag in there which can be changed to stop the discussion appearing on the list.

    Well yeah it's removed it off the list for regular users. But for me as admin I can still see it (not really a problem).

    Fair enough. I'm still quite curious why this happened to begin with..how odd.
