I made the mistake of deleting one of my forums today, thinking it was one that I had just added that had been messed up on add (see other post)

Just click and delete.. no confirm or anything. It smoked the posts too. I looked in the DB to try and recover them

If you don't have any backup, then say good-bye to your data. There is no confirmation because JForum consider that, if you selected the checkbox and then move the mouse until the "Delete" button, it's because you are sure you want to delete it.
