Whoever wrote the report you attached failed to understand Unix
permissions. You know:

 - You can delete files you does not own if you have write
   permissions to the containing directory and either you own
   the directory or the directory lacks the +t bit.

 - You can't delete files you own if you lack write permission
   for the containing directory (even if you own it, unless
   you're root).

 - etc...
