Comment (by hnla):

 Clearly we did so for a reason - I wasn't directly responsible for this so
 a little hazy as to exactly why although I think there is likely a
 discussion ticket somewhere that explains our reasoning iirc.

 A few facts though.

 1. This CSS hides the anchor and icon for the delete link but leaves the
 'activate/deactivate' links in place, from this screen we don't delete
 only activate or deactivate a message - it seems that logic dictates or
 suggests if we can deactivate or re-activate then deleting  is a bit of a
 contradiction I guess we thought the point of screen was to display ALL
 notices allowing option to review and re-activate.

 2. If I re-enable that link it does delete the notice, it does NOT throw
 an error, so likely this is a facet of the users install at the time.

 3. Always look to the scss sheet as there are often comments as to why
 something is actioned ( scss allows comments that don't clutter the
 compiled stylesheet & thus can be more verbose)

 I guess we should really look for the ticket where this action was decided
 on ( if I'm right that one exists) then decide whether we should re-
 instate the link.
