Description Matt 2007-09-15 06:34:50 UTC
When you have a higher-than-sysop protection level (i.e. bureaucrat or siteadmin) on a page, sysops can still unprotect that page or delete and recreate to edit. All actions should be blocked on a page, without having to add extra actions to protect against (protect, unprotect, delete, etc)

I can provide a link to where this is - also, I cant add protect, unprotect, delete, etc to the protected actions as it doesnt apply. Weird.
