Dear FireBoard users,

Bug: You can put a forum inside itself

Bug: You can put a forum inside itself 10 Years, 2 Months ago  
Steps to recreate:
1. Create a new forum and save it.
2. Click on the forum to edit it.
3. Click on the parent drop down, you will see the forum you\'re editing, which is the main source of the problem.
4. Try setting the forum as its own parent and save it. Interesting things happen. ;) (the forum disappears...I\'m almost afraid to see what the database tables look like after doing this)

Ouch, confirmed. I did this a few times to make sure I wasn\'t crazy, and I have some rows like this:
id , parent , name
4 , 0 , Music Discussion
5 , 5 , General Music Discussion
6 , 6 , General Music Discussion
7 , 4 , General Music Discussion


Is it safe to just drop those rows containing the 5,5 and 6,6?
