cascading delete

So, I noticed if I delete the “Luis Majano” author, all the content in the site gets deleted too.

  1. Did you code that, or is it some sort of cascading-delete functionality that Hibernate offers.
  2. Should we allow an author to be deleted if they are tied to content?
  3. If so, do we want it deleting their content? (perhaps it could re-assign it all to another user)
