We introduce two new permissions that let administrators allow/disallow users to discard changes. * "Discard changes" lets a user discard their own pending changes; defaults to "yes" for the role "normal monitoring user". * "Discard foreign changes" lets a user discard other users' pending changes (foreign changes); defaults to "no" for the role "normal monitoring user".

You can find the two permissions for any role under Setup > Users > Roles & permissions in the section "Setup".
