When I give moderators only the permission to approve/disapprove threads/posts and view moderation queue, they can also multi-select threads and posts and delete them. Resolved: A moderator in the moderating usergroup auto-receives full moderator permissions. Also, when a moderator only has approve/disapprove permissions they can also view the reported posts, shouldn't this privilege only be given to moderators who actually can deal with reports (such as mods who can deal with profiles/threads/posts)? Still an issue. Also notice that if a moderator with approve/disapprove permissions (and view moderated threads/posts permissions) disapproves a post then it doesn't show in the moderation queue for that user, but does for Administrators and moderators with permissions *need to run checks to specify which ones*.
