On this site we usually move spam posts to a hidden forum. Including posts waiting to be approved.
Currently there are a few posts waiting on approval.
From the control panel I selected one and viewed it.
Consider it spam and attempted to move it to the Boneyard using the edit button on the post.
I get a error message:
You cannot move a branch of a topic that has unapproved posts in it.
I did attempt to delete one other one using the manage topic tab and that was successful
I also assume if I had approved the post I could have moved it afterwards.
But is that not backwards.
