Cannot delete content type from list

Problem: Added in a content type to a list and it's not letting me delete it. Says content type in use.

Soln: Modify the view of the list and see which item is using the content type. (Check the 'content type' column to have it in the view.) Then change the content type to some other one (perhaps 'Document'). After all the items are changed to a different content type, you can then delete the one that says in use.

Alerts setup findings

For users to see their own alerts on "My Settings", they must have at least READ access.

With READ access, they see the "alert me", but when they click on "alert me", it gives "access denied".

With anonymous access turned on, everyone can read. However, if user is not in read access category, user will NOT get the alert.
