Why not to use remove link

This is my experience: I have to rewrite administration page where
there is remove button (in a form) with only javascript confirm.

I thought: "no one had problem with no limitation in the past, why they
should now? I'll use a link with javascript confirm.

It happened I have a dashboard page where is listed the last entries
and links for update and delete its. It happened that few day later 20
entries was deleted and I was looking for what caused the problem for
one day.
