This question has been asked many times on this list. I encourage posters
to do some homework before posting repetitive questions that can irritate
some of our readers.

If I have edit (write) capability, then I can remove all content band
write and empty file. In that case I have deleted all content!

Under Unix - if you have write capability to a file you can delete it.

If anyone can come up with a way around this then judging by comments on
this list, the IT industry needs you!
