If I have the ID of a message, and know the correct format for the history page (basically just by opening up the history of a message that hasn't been removed), is it intentional that I am allowed to view the history of a removed question?

I might have to check, but my understanding is that this is limited to the person who posted the message, and owners of the room. Do you have an example?

Agh, suits me right for being a bit slow with posting this. I discovered it a few days ago, it's no longer possible. I am given a page not existing. Or.... perhaps it's limited to questions that was edited before removed? Let me test that... – Lasse V. Karlsen Oct 28 '10 at 8:21
Yep, fixed. I can see my own, but not yours. I could see others messages a few days ago, but I was slooow. Anyway... – Lasse V. Karlsen Oct 28 '10 at 8:23
@Lasse nothing was "fixed" here AFAIK ('cos nothing was broken); simply you must have been a room owner. – Marc Gravell Oct 28 '10 at 8:33
